Little and large in Jersey

  • Comment

Naish Waddington Architects has just completed two contrasting housing projects in Jersey - a single family house, South Wind, near St Peter (below), and flats for Jersey Homes Trust housing association in central St Helier (right and top). Tenants from across the island are just moving into the 113 single-bed flats of Berkshire Court. Two blocks of deck-access accommodation for the over-50s face each other across a landscaped courtyard.There is 56-bay basement parking below.On the street is a colourful presence.

The architect was appointed after initial planning permission.Good value at £12 million, the balconies and decks of this D&B contract were prefabricated in London.

South Wind is a four-bed house over semi-basement parking. Designed with engineer Arup Rothwell, it is located on the coast in a rocky, uncultivated area.The stone-clad base of the house is topped with a cedar-clad, highly insulated, timber structure and gently curving sedum roof. Here is a building merging into the landscape, in contrast to Berkshire Court, mixing it with the buzz of the city.
