Portelet House - BAS MooArc

Guernsey Beach Villa - The Portlet House is one of many fantastic works on Guernsey by BAS MooArc - Minimalist style creating a welcoming beach retreat...more

Well after a huge hiatus, I though I would post this gem to rekindle the spirits as Christmas approaches. After a quick catch up on Facebook Jamie Falla kindly provided me with some floor plans to their Portelet House, overlooking Portelet Harbour - Guernsey.

Conceived as three timber blocks nestled into the hillside allowing views of the surrounding landscape from all principle rooms. The palette of materials blends with the beach setting and mediates between water, earth and sky.

With sea views out to the North - the house faces a battle between light and distractions. Rightly so, large full height glazing faces out to sea from both the living and dining room. These comprising two of three connected timber blocks. Angled skylights and clerestory windows ensure that the hallways and bedrooms are also doused in daylight.

The Dining/Kitchen area and Lounge are separated by a glazed ended hallway that runs to the property's entrance and linking the entertainment area to the more enclosed bedrooms to the rear. The glazed end providing a clear shot out to the bay from the entrance.

Contrasting the timber cabins above, a further entertainment area and library are held in the basement below - a welcome retreat for when the wonderful views become too much.

Sensational info. I look forward to seeing more.Interior decoration is normally professionally done by Interior Decorators although recently the trend has been for people to learn about Interior Decorating through various courses or books and then apply the techniques themselves-usually on a shoestring budget. The whole objective of Interior Decorating is to make a house aesthetically pleasing and at the same time, unique, since it should reflect the owner's specific personality and tastes.

This is one of the prettiest buildings I've seen! Holy cow, I want one just like it. A friend of mine designs buildings in Edmonton. Maybe he could help me with this.
