Timber & Flint Extension

A beautiful and sympathetic extension adds a striking contemporary space to this 5 bedroom family home. Set in the South Downs National Park this 2 storey extension beautiful merges and extends the living space while continuing the Sussex hip roof.

Residential Extension




Existing house 266m2 + 75m2 extension


Reconfiguration of main living space was key. A large open plan kitchen / living room is flooded with light whilst looking out onto spectacular views. On the first floor the master bedroom has been extended and now has its own private roof terrace. Planning designed by ECE Architects.


The black timber cladding reflects the materials found in the main house. On the extension, however, this has been laid vertically creating a wonderful contemporary feature. The striking flint plinth reflects the local vernacular and helps to bed in the extension with its surroundings.
