Oast houses are typical of the Sussex landscape, dating from the seventeenth century this property is a grade II Listed building. A single-story extension to the rear of the property was required to increase accommodation space and bring more light into the property. Planning required the extension to be set behind the house to maintain the existing long distance views.
The extension has a shallow mono-pitched zinc clad roof sloping away from the former barn and a lower slender piece of flat roof forming the junction between the new zinc roof and the rebuilt oast roundel.
A large glazed roof light, flush with the sloping zinc roof maximises the light brought in, providing views through the window of the tall oak trees in the garden. A mix of Schuco ASS70FD folding sliding doors, AWS65 windows, bespoke frameless glazing created with frames concealed giving the appearance of frameless glass and structural steel with Schuco FW50+ for the structural glazed roof.
