A jewel in the Sussex countryside
This Oast House, tucked away in the Sussex countryside, had been expanded and adapted to new ways of living since it’s days as a working hop kiln in the 18th century. The result was an ill-conceived arrangement of internal and external living spaces, unsuited to the new owners requirements.
By removing and re-organising non-essential areas, many period features were uncovered and incorporated into the transformation of the house; influencing and informing material and detail selection. A new outbuilding, designed in the style of of the local vernacular, enabled the owners to separate living from working; a primary object of their brief.
