Windmill Drive

Windmill Drive, Brighton
Client: Private
Status: Planning approved

This proposal is to extend an existing two-bedroom bungalow into a four-bedroom family home. The building’s footprint will not increase and the proposed build will be no taller than its adjacent neighbour. The materiality of the proposal is intended to be contemporary yet sensitive; a focus on design and high-quality detailing will result in a building which both respects and compliments its surroundings.

In keeping with traditional Sussex building materials, slate cladding has been proposed. Inspired by the windmill after which the road is named, the palette of materials has been chosen to evoke Sussex agricultural and rural vernacular buildings. However, crisp detailing, such as box guttering and dormer windows, will ensure a contemporary finish.
