Withdean Road Houses

The site lies on a hillside to the northern edge of Brighton and is within an affluent residential district, enjoying views south across the city to the sea and east across the South Downs.
The development of three detached houses for the open market was founded on a brief to create high quality, contemporary homes without recourse to the rather clichéd zinc roof and white rendered modernist designs not uncommon in Brighton – while also making a family of houses that also assert a subtle individuality.

While seen as a coherent group, each house is given identity by subtle changes to fenestration to the street front, and the upper timber ‘boxes’ are in a different coloured stains, based on a palette of natural autumnal colours.
