ANCIENT WOODLAND HOUSE
The brief was to replace a single-storey 1990’s annexe with a new extension to provide additional accommodation to complement the existing Grade II listed house. The structure of the new extension is entirely timber, which is expressed internally with exposed oak columns, beams, trusses and purlins, and allows for additional living space and utilities.
The brief was to design a replacement detached dwelling which maximises the site location, embraces modern construction methods and sustainability whilst utilising sympathetic materials. The geometric form embraces the traditional double gable but within a contemporary dynamic envelope.

BLACK TIMBER HOUSE
A conscientious, considered and well-designed home in the heart of the South Downs National Park. From the materials used to passive ways of reducing energy consumption the dwelling has ecological and sustainable values at the heart of the design. The material pallet has been carefully curated to patina and weather into its surroundings, using charred English larch cladding boards, with a highly pronounced grain and greater colour depth, complemented with natural copper guttering and dark slate roofs to create a particularly impressive aesthetic.

The design was for an upside-down two-storey build, with an additional basement storey. The site did present challenges notably the proximity to the London Mainline railway coupled with a thirty-degree natural slope. The final timber superstructure saw the eco component being achieved by the building being significantly dug into the ground resulting in a high thermal mass from the base of concrete and the lighter weight highly insulated SIPS panel construction above ground.
