Fitz Architects were commissioned to design a scheme of five dwelling houses on the site of the former Church Lane House, Church Lane, Whitburn. The gated site has a private drive, parking, individual gardens and landscaped communal gardens overlooking the cricket ground. The vandalised tithe barn wall to the northern boundary is one of the oldest walls in Whitburn and will be restored as part of the external works.
The houses are open plan on the ground floor, illuminated on the north side by a three storey, roof lit void and a large glass wall looking southwards onto the garden. Each house includes south facing balconies and living space on the second floor giving views out to sea.
The traditional material palette compliments the surroundings and contrasts the contemporary built form.
