North Street Quarter
Lewes, E. Sussex
Seven years after recording every post, beam and truss of the Phoenix Ironworks in Lewes we are back. This time working for developer Human+Nature who have asked us to design seven houses and seven workshops. Our model and drawings of a courtyard made from rammed earth walls spent the weekend on display alongside the rest of the masterplan for North Street.
Four wooden roofs sit on top of rammed earth walls
We made a series of sample blocks for the Phoenix Design Festival using a jig made by Mike which we then coloured with red iron oxide and an ochre pigment produced as a by-product of cleaning up old welsh mines.
