Herstmonceux, East Sussex
Budget: Not Disclosed
Guy and Claire's house in Herstmonceux is a solid and modest cottage on the edge of the village. Inside, the rooms have a pleasing simplicity yet the kitchen is tiny with little space to gather and cook together. To create an extension that would be fun to use and that had a cottage character we drew a glass and Sussex tile garden room on a brick plinth jutting towards the Downs. Between the front and back door we designed a box that contains a dresser, lavatory and larder that is detailed to have a scullery-like character. Planning permission was granted in 2019.
