An inspirational, sustainable, energy efficient family home
The architecture for this Paragraph 80 (Para 80) passive house has developed from the key black and white characteristics of flint, which is a locally quarried material found in this area.
Our proposals explore these contrasting textures and enable the building to assimilate into the woodland backdrop when being viewed from the public realm. The dark external simplicity sets up a dramatic surprise when entering the building, revealing its curved white courtyard and bright interior spaces.
A detailed analysis of views from within the South Downs National Park revealed a part of the site which was shielded by various foreground screening. This screened portion of the site has then directly informed the footprint of our proposals.
