South Downs National Park

A concept by Nicholas Grimshaw to rebuild New Elms Barn as a house for composing music under the Downs fell foul of National Park heritage policies. Our work was to reappraise the site and consider the best approach for adapting traditional farm buildings. The area is renowned for creativity and this has momentum. Glyndebourne, Charleston, Furlongs, and Monk's House are all nearby homes and studios.
