We were approached to design two town houses situated in the heart of Lewes, East Sussex. The site was a very tight plot which needed to accommodate two 3-4 bed houses. The design approach was to create a 2 and a half storey house with small rooms in the loft and a utility basement for storage and utilities. The constraints of the site meant the overall mass of the building needed to work carefully with close proximity houses and rear gardens as to mitigate an over bearing nature. The house stepped at the rear to give a balcony/courtyard garden while containing the overlooking and rights of light issues.
