Black Timber House
by HAPA Architects
Awards RIBA South East Award 2023, RIBA South East Small Project of the Year Award 2023 (sponsored by Gaggenau).
The Black Timber House sits calmly but confidently at the edge of Rodmell, a small village south of Lewes. Located amongst feathered-edge timber and flint cottages, the bucolic context produces a site rife with constraints. Sat within the South Downs National Park and a conservation area, it is located at the far end of a single-track road as the adjacent postwar bungalows give way to rolling fields and the River Ouse beyond.
