Housing, Jaywick Sands, Essex
The scheme is designed on environmentally sustainable principles. Reflecting the timber chalets of the original settlement, the walls of the two-storey houses are clad with untreated western red cedar boards, with sand/cement render on north and east elevations for wind protection and on gable walls for fire protection.
