Adur House

In a village that lies in the Mid Sussex District of West Sussex, the proposed home adopts a rural building typology of linked forms, much like a farmstead.

A 2-storey, pitched-roofed volume runs parallel to the adjacent lane, presenting gable ends to both the nearest house, and the new property some distance away to the north. A single-storey volume sits to the front at right angles, and has a mono-pitched roof creating an ‘L-shaped’ plan. The entrance occurs between the two volumes as a glazed link.

A freestanding outbuilding (cars, plant, gym) sits to the west following the site boundary – this is fronted by a timber loggia that unites the three volumes (and allows travel from garage to front door without getting wet).

The plan of the building creates a strong entrance court and contains a garden space to the rear of the house.
