The design of a replacement house in the South Downs National Park requires much thought and sensitivity. This new five bedroom home has adopted its downland setting in an unassuming manner.
Traditional forms of Sussex domestic architecture have been drawn together in a careful composition to create a subtle design with understated contemporary detailing. Flintwork, handmade brick and green oak structure are brought together under a natural slate roof.
A comprehensive hard and soft landscaping scheme is a central component of the design, creating a series of sheltered sun traps and optimising views whilst softening the impact of the building through a series of outdoor rooms.
This project won a Sussex Heritage Trust Award in 2016
