Countryside ‘Eco’ Home
This modern, but sensitive addition, to a charming rustic barn conversion provides extended living accommodation for the family, along with ‘work from home’ facilities.
A contemporary courtyard arrangement includes a mezzanine level, accessed via a feature helical staircase, under a subtle wave-form ‘green’ roof. A structural glass lobby links the historic barn to the new additions.
A very low carbon footprint was achieved, by high levels of insulation, utilising ecological building materials and alternative forms of energy.
The project won the Sussex Heritage Trust Award in 2013.
