The Architect

Award-winning LOYN+CO ARCHITECTS is a local, Penarth company, practicing since 1987. Established by Chris Loyn, the passionate team has now grown to ten and work on projects across the UK into Europe.

Every aspect of the development has been carefully designed to draw on the area’s natural beauty and enhance the overall finish. From the floor to ceiling windows, the inclined position of the three buildings and the flat roofs making way for roof gardens or terraces, every detail has been considered.

The building’s exterior material in the main, is pale facing brickwork, complemented by a darker, richer brick tone chosen to withstand its maritime environment. Combined with copper, the finish emphasises and blends seamlessly with the surrounding area.

Scimitar

Scimitar Homes is an award winning bespoke housebuilder and developer of high specification homes across south east Wales.

Following in his architect father’s footprints, Jon Shields, established Scimitar Homes in 1989. Primarily set out as a commercial property builder, the team constructed hundreds of shops, cafes and offices with its first project completed in Taffs Well nearly 30 years ago. In 1996, Scimitar turned its attention to residential property and built its first home in Morganstown, Radyr that year.

Now, the team specialises in ultra-modern ‘Grand Design’ style homes, and has a proven record of creating exceptional, characterful new builds across the region. Sainte Adresse is a prime example of the exquisite work they produce.
