Two BBM residential projects now live on the website
The Dock – Firle, East Sussex
Project: Two storey rear extension and single storey side extension with sensitive refurbishments to existing works
The Dock lies within the Firle Conservation Area and the South Downs National Park. Although the existing two-storey, four-bedroom house was not statutorily listed, it was identified as being of local interest and is located within the surrounding conservation area. A sensitive approach to the existing fabric and built form was required to create minimal impact on the surrounding area.
The works included multiple extensions providing additional bedrooms and a bathroom to the house as well as the re-planning of communal spaces and a full refurbishment of the property including thermal upgrades. Click here for the full project profile.
Abbots Barn – Ripe, East Sussex
Project: New build extension with associated external works
Located in sight of the South Downs National Park, the annexe was designed to sit respectively alongside the existing dwelling. The annexe forms a fourth side to the main property’s entrance courtyard and its presence protects the area from a strong south westerly prevailing wind. Meanwhile, large glazed openings to the south and west elevations address the surrounding landscape and views of the National Park, something lacked previously.
