The Outlook Buildings take the image of Californian beach houses and introduce it to the English climate on the Essex coast.
We have worked with Gladedale Homes over a number of phases to establish a masterplan for the Shoeburyness Garrison Conservation Area. The Outlook Buildings were the first, highly visible part of the development. They screen the suburban housing from the long views from the Thames Estuary. The carefully placed gaps between the blocks maintain the visual connections across the site between the Garrison, the beach and the coastal walk.
