Award Winning "The Waves" - high quality sea front residential development located on the Grouville coast road.
2023 Jersey Construction Council Awards - The Waves – won the Association for Project Management Project of the Year between £2m-£10m in association with the main contractor Rok Construction and our clients Bob & Sue Beslievre of Sycamore Properties Limited.
The development included 9 top quality, luxury beachfront apartments, houses, and penthouses, all with secure garage parking plus visitor parking and stores.
Offering fantastic sea views and surrounded by natural beauty, in a great coastal location, this outstanding development, is finished throughout to the highest specification. The development also features charge points for electric cars, direct beach access and a communal bike store along with a private air-conditioned gym, fully equipped with shower facilities.
Morris Architects recognised the need for a sensitive approach to the historical context of the site, so the design included a significant enhancement to the historic assets on the site, particularly Martello Tower No 2. By removing the existing buildings that surrounded the tower, we provided public benefits by opening up the view and carefully restoring and refurbishing the tower. This allowed the beloved local landmark to shine and contribute to the enhancement of the overall historic context.
The two buildings to the north of the site, were strategically positioned to create a deliberate relationship with the Martello Tower, effectively opening up a significant space around the Tower. These buildings were set back from the road and seafront to enhance views of and beyond the Martello Tower for the public. Jersey granite was used in their construction, with a predominance of glazing to create a light and contrasting effect compared to the solid massing of the Martello Tower.
After some challenging Planning and Royal Court decisions, it was finally nice to see this quite special project reach completion.
