Designed for a stunning elevated site in West Sussex, this replacement dwelling enjoys far reaching views of the South Downs National Park.
Camillin Denny Architects developed the original concept of a contemporary house with a floor plan orientated towards the long views. It has four bedrooms, a study, workshop, open plan living area, kitchen and swimming pool.
The design consists of a series of series of cubic forms that are arranged to give each internal space a view.
A first floor terrace overlooks the swimming pool and is accessed from the master bedroom and guest bedroom suites. The terraces have frameless glass balustrade to ensure that the views remain uninterrupted, whilst to the rear a sedum roof adds visual interest outside the master bedroom.
The house meets the Code for Sustainable Homes Level 3 which was replaced by the new national technical standards. It features a ground source heat pump for heating and cooling requirements and KNX environmental and lighting controls. Locally source building materials have been specified ranging from a flint feature wall through to locally coppiced sweet chestnuts creens and cladding.
