Black timber house, Rodmell

Sussex, Rodmell

2020

A contemporary eco house in the heart of the South Downs National Park in Rodmell, East Sussex. Two forms are stacked to create interesting overhangs and roof spaces. The veranda and window reveals are clad in natural wood while the rest of the exterior is clad in striking sustainable black timber. This black timber echoes the local agricultural vernacular nearby. Making use of the apex internally there are some impressive double height spaces. In addition the roof light over the stairs adds some fantastic drama and light.
