An edge of town development which exploits a sloping site to give spectacular views of the sea and the harbour of St Ives.
It is unusual for houses costing half a million pounds to face socially rented homes across a twenty metre wide street. Trinity Watch is in an area where the demand for second homes is high and provides eleven houses for sale alongside two houses and two apartments for social rent.
Fifteen different house plans have been used in this tightly grained scheme which is inspired by the urban form of the historic town centre of St Ives. The buildings are carefully detailed with high quality materials which reference the local vernacular while avoiding pastiche.
Trinity Watch won a Building for Life Award in 2009.
