Coach House project, an energy efficient passive solar new-build, designed by Hawkes Architecture.

Coach  House

Set discreetly within a village Conservation Area at the edge of the South Downs National Park, this replacement dwelling provides more space than the rather mundane chalet bungalow it replaces.

Cleverly integrated to preserve the subtle contribution the existing house makes to the surrounding area, the new dwelling does not seek to dominate the established hierarchy of buildings in the vicinity. The design narrative is one of assimilation and surprise. The form and materials palette are restrained, predominantly just brick & tile on the outside.

Sides of the building which cannot be seen from the Conservation Area face south towards the National Park optimising passive solar gains and here the design massing is manipulated, optimising views of a colossal Cedar of Lebanon tree that dominates the 23 acre site.
