Land ahoy

Architect Caroline Buckingham has replaced a derelict cottage with a playful, contemporary home by the sea

London-based architect Caroline Buckingham, a vice president of RIBA (The Royal Institute of British Architects), often sailed her yacht around the Isle of Wight. But it was only after taking to two wheels to explore the island on a bicycle that she made an unexpected discovery. Turning down an unmarked track, she came across a dilapidated rendered cottage and cowshed with a for sale sign outside. Ideas for a project immediately started to brew, and a short ride further along the beach confirmed that this was certainly somewhere with plenty of potential
