  • Cost £2.2m

The Monterey is a development of 15 one and two bedroom apartments including a number of spacious two bedroom duplex apartments and in addition 3 converted cottages available to rent to local people. The project was undertaken jointly in partnership with Conran and Partners.

Located in the picturesque fishing village of Porthleven in Cornwall, the design of the Monterey was carefully considered to provide innovative use of space and natural daylight. Each home is complimented by stylish, contemporary fittings and eye catching detail to create a supreme, luxurious living environment.

The buildings are designed to sit comfortably amongst the collection of historic buildings in the Harbour Conservation Area, many of which are listed and were constructed at the same time as the Harbour around 150 years ago.

The design drew on the aesthetic language of the traditional harbourside for inspiration, at the same time incorporating contemporary technical detailing.
