New House in Brighton
Working as architects in Brighton, Shape Architecture has prepared designs for a new house set at the bottom of a garden in Old Portslade. The garden setting is largely characterised by a sloping site with the lowest part being at the bottom of the site. Given this, the proposed house is located at the bottom of the garden and is largely hidden from view to passers-by in the street.
The width and length of the site accommodates a separate driveway without any compromise to the existing dwelling. Equally important is that the proposed property is able to enjoy good sized gardens again without compromise to the existing gardens. In such a green setting each interior space is designed to maximise the connection between inside and outside spaces. A large living room enjoys a triple aspect. At first floor level all bedrooms benefit from a dual aspect.
