The four 400sm semi-detached houses form part of a row of substantial properties that showcase the 400-unit Accordia development for Countryside Properties, currently shortlisted for the 2008 Stirling Prize.



Inspired by the array of eccentric villas along Brooklands Avenue, the houses provide a flexible open plan layout with internal spaces varying in height and orientation within the envelope defined by FCB Architects’ high density, sustainable masterplan.

The Salt House is a rare example of a contemporary UK sea-side house.  Described by The Guardian’s Architecture critic Jonathan Glancey as “one of the best new houses in Britain today”, the building has been hailed as a prototype for flood-proof residential construction and reinvents the Modernist tradition of the 'experimental' beach house.


In 2006 the project won the Grand Designs Award for the Best New Build House of the Year and in 2008 was awarded the 2007 RIBA Manser Medal.
