We are delighted to have gained planning consent for this replacement home, occupying a secluded position in the Sussex countryside.
A contemporary twist on the traditional Sussex vernacular was adopted for this replacement dwelling, with an emphasis on sustainability and energy efficient technologies.
This new family home encompassed an eclectic design philosophy, fusing a farmstead influence with a more contemporary presence, ensuring an appropriate relationship within the landscape and a nod to the memory of the original house.
Our design approach was to create a comfortable three-bedroom house, larger than the original, but designed in such a way to reduce the effect of any size increase, partly by its shape and form and partly with the use of the roof space for living accommodation.
The use of high-quality materials such as handmade bricks, horizontal weather boarding and coursed sand-stone under a series of simple clay tiled roof, again refer to the Sussex vernacular, albeit fused with the clean lines of a contemporary aesthetic.
This new house is designed to be sustainable homes. Materials will, where possible, be obtained from renewable local sources and materials from demolition of the old house will be re-used in the new construction or recycled where possible.
Energy efficient technologies will control the services, and the inclusion of rainwater harvesting, and grey water storage will form part of a holistic approach for carbon reduction and energy use
