This property is a sympathetic modern extension to a traditional flint barn deep in the South Downs. Pfeiffer Design handled the entire project from start to finish, working with a trusted professional team including architects, structural engineers and the main contractor. At over 300 square metres, it was a major undertaking: we spent two years in the planning stage, followed by a year of construction, then a further six months of interior furnishing and outdoor landscaping.
The building marries vernacular knapped flint, slate and bricks with contemporary glass and decking. Our efforts were rewarded with a magnificent contemporary building that blends seamlessly with the original. We also won a prestigious Sussex Heritage Award, which recognise and celebrate the highest achievements in conservation, restoration and design.
