After the birth of their first daughter, the young family were taken by the idea of a single-family house in the  countryside. in the wienerwald they found a little house in need of rehabilitation with a large garden. prospective  possibilities of enlargement were already investigated before buying the property.the lean budget required a high  portion of own capital in order to take the first steps in renovating the old building and undertake thermal  sanitation.upon completion of sanitation, the second child had already been born, and thoughts regarding an  annexe became more concrete. also, the grandmother’s wish for a granny flat should be taken into consideration.  building regulations left little leeway regarding building density and height. in order to accommodate the entire  spatial programme, developing a two-storey structure was mandatory.

In an area of ancient woodland bordering Ashdown Forest in East Sussex the new build house for a private client is set into a hillside overlooking a stream and the Wealden farmland beyond. Arranged over three levels the main living spaces, accessed via a folded steel plate bridge, occupy the middle floor and lead out to a generous verandah hung from and sheltered by the overhanging roof. Solid oak stairs machined from timber from the woods and cantilevered from the supporting concrete walls lead either up to the bedroom floor or down to a strip of utility spaces and through to a swimming pool room whose sliding glass wall opens up to the adjoining covered terrace and surrounding meadow.
