Contemporary architecture in a family home full of character

The dream

A significantly extended and renovated modern country home that provides family accommodation, a useful annexe, and beautiful landscaped gardens.

The details

We love the creative design and juxtaposition of natural materials.

Perfectly formed and nestled in the countryside

A contemporary architecture journey… We achieved planning and undertook the architecture for this extensive refurbishment and extension of home and annexe located in the beautiful West Sussex countryside not far from the coast in West Wittering. The end result is a fabulous modern family home full of character. The brief was to create two wings, one for living and the other for sleeping. The layout we came up with is generous, creating a large primary bedroom suite, plus four bedrooms, study and playroom in one wing and an expansive open plan kitchen, dining and living room, snug, utility, boot room and pantry in the other.

The façade was designed with mirrored zinc double prongs and glazing framing the entrance. The two front volumes are punctuated at intervals by glazing and projecting aluminium reveals. The vertical Siberian larch Russwood timber cladding treated with SiOO:X pairs beautifully with the zinc and the finished home nestles perfectly in the natural environment. We have specified slim window frames throughout and large glass doors open onto the landscaped gardens. The annexe mirrors the design of the main house. The home has improved from a sustainable point of view with the addition of MVHR and a construction envelope achieving high levels of thermal standards. The home was also future proofed to accommodate a hydrogen boiler.
