Alington Road, Sandbanks Luxury Residential Homes, Dorset

BrightSpace worked closely with our client to design and deliver two new luxury residential homes in one of the most prestigious locations in the UK, Sandbanks – Dorset. Alington Road is situated within the Evening Hill conservation area and provides stunning panoramic views across Poole Harbour towards Brownsea Island.

Starting with a brief to design a contemporary set of luxury homes that fits comfortably into the surrounding context, the architecture was heavily influenced by the sites existing topography. This provided an opportunity to sink the homes into the ground - providing shelter from the surrounding properties and reducing the visual impact to neighboring homes.

To allow stunning views across Sandbanks and Poole while providing privacy for our clients, the bedrooms are situated on the ground floor with an open plan kitchen and living space to the first floor. A central courtyard provides natural light and ventilation into the centre of each property that provides an inviting atmosphere to the ground floor. Entering through a concealed, stone walled entrance, the front door opens into a grand staircase that, thanks to the roof lights, is flooded with natural light. The expansive lounge and open terrace benefits from the Southern sun and is orientated perfectly to watch stunning sunsets across Sandbanks. 

The project was designed and delivered by the team here at BSA and was constructed by Urban Homes – construction specialists based in Poole, Dorset.
