We are delighted to announce that R W Armstrong has picked up another award at this year’s Sussex Heritage Trust Awards! The Trust is a registered charity established in 1977 and has since awarded many projects for their efforts to conserve, preserve and rejuvinate our architectural and natural heritage. The charity’s motto, ‘design for the future, respect for the past’, is very reflective of our approach to our work.
Winner: Small Scale Residential Award
The brief for this project was to replace an existing dwelling (above left) that had been a family home, which had been poorly extended in the past. The replacement dwelling (above right) designed by Simon Morray-Jones Architects, was larger than the original house, so consideration was given to ensure it enhanced both its immediate and wider setting.
The judges commented of the work, “the impression we were left with was of a really elegant house and outbuildings in the style of a manor house in a sublime setting. The layout was balanced, the detail well-considered and the craftsmanship to the highest standard.”
Congratulations to all the team involved!
