Great Dixter House

Situated near the village of Northiam, in East Sussex, is the Grade I listed building of Great Dixter House. The Estate, built between 1440 and 1454, is internationally renowned for its timber framed house and garden. Phase 3 - development and alterations - is now underway. This includes: important conservation repairs; the re-instatement of an external staircase to the Great Barn; installation of a biomass boiler within the Oast House; and construction of a bunker, adjacent to the Oast, to provide storage for wood chip fuel for the boiler. A new oak-framed shop garden loggia will be constructed on the site of an existing glass green house, which will provide a permanent covered area and toilet facilities for visitors.

The existing system of eave gutters and downpipes on the Great Barn and Oast House will connect to a new rainwater drainage underground system, which will then connect to a new rainwater harvesting storage tank. Wool acoustic insulating matting is to be installed within the existing timber framed walls and roof of biomass boiler house.

Private Residence, Keston Park, Kent

Design Architect: Spaced Out Ltd., London
Main Contractor: Modillion Homes, Surrey
Glass Contractor: Cantifix, London
Building Control: BBS Building Control Limited

Private Residence, Kent

This property was inspired by the light and space of a woodland clearing. The house is full of curves and wonderful framed views of the parkland setting. Large expanses of glazing transform the views and emphasize the dynamic relationship of the building with the landscape. Constructed innovatively and economically by using curtain walling sections, each glazed façade contains Heat Mirror Film; a transparent film which minimises the heat entering and leaving the house through the glass.

The approximate floor area of the two-storey, steel frame construction is 380m2. The house includes: a large open-plan kitchen/dining area; six bedrooms; five bathrooms and a lift.
