Birds Portchmouth Russum present housing scheme to Jersey Architecture Commission

Birds Portchmouth Russum were invited by their long-standing associate, the Jersey-based architect Richard le Sueur, to collaborate on the design of a housing scheme on a cliff-top overlooking the Atlantic on the coast of Jersey. The design is in sympathy with the harsh but beautiful cliffs of the South Jersey coast, and was inspired by the strata visible in the rocks. The conceptual proposals were presented to the Jersey Architecture Commission, Jersey's design review body.
