The Rocket development in Newquay is a further project and collaboration between AWW and developer Acorn, located within close proximity to Newquay’s Fistral Beach. The scheme comprises eight high quality apartments over five floors of accommodation with a further half buried basement level housing services and parking.
The building has an elliptical form and takes advantage of the spectacular western views of Fistral Beach and the horizon, whilst overlooking the vast green area to the south of the towns leading golf club and to the north having expansive views of the western coastline of Cornwall.
Predominantly a timber frame envelope, this building has excellent insulation value.
“The project had to respond to an extremely sloping site whilst responding to restrictive planning conditions and concerns. AWW also had to provide a solution with a key concern to detail working with cedar cladding, two differing renders in both type and colour, Cornish stone, metal cladding and glass in various forms such as forming balconies, windows and curtain walling, housed within the schemes elliptical form.”
