Set discreetly within a 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 village, the new dwelling does not seek to dominate the established hierarchy of buildings in the vicinity.
The form and materials palette are restrained, predominantly just brick & tile on the outside. Sides of the building that cannot be seen from the Conservation Area, face south towards the National Park, optimising passive solar gain, whist providing stunning views across the 23 acre site.
The planning application for this unique project has been submitted to Chichester DC for approval.
