LINDFIELD HOUSE

BY
The Lindfield House is a bold and contemporary addition which embodies the client’s combined passions for art, gardens, and colour. The colourful materiality and texture of the house are both warm and rich, whilst the monastic form and scale of the architecture install an overall tranquillity. Most importantly, the building carefully frames and reveals the clients loved the garden. The landscape is the mesmerising star of the show.

​The design is a deliberate play on the scale that complements the proportions of the large, lush landscaped back garden. The scale of the dwelling moves from the original domestic scale, opening up to the grand scale of the garden. The additions floor area is not large, however, the rooms take on an exaggerated size, with soaring ceilings and super-wide walls.

​The new spaces are bold and confident in their identity. Enormous openings draw the garden into the house. This change of scale between old and new creates the illusion that you could almost touch the end of the garden 100m away.
