Location South Downs National Park, Hampshire Designations AONB National Park, Conservation Area Client Private Value Undisclosed Sector Private Residential Photography PAD studio The Meadow is a replacement house sited amongst a meadow within the South Downs National Park. The scheme has been carefully composed - shaped by the context, Client brief and site constraints. The house is arranged as a cluster of volumes, acknowledging an internal/external linking space. Stepped in plan and form, the building responds to adjacent buildings, ensuring their views remain uninterrupted. This enables fluid circulation through the home, retaining a sense of 'retreating' into spaces. The house's external fabric has been largely prefabricated off site using an innovative highly insulated timber frame system, utilising thermal mass and controlled solar gain to regulate internal conditions without the need for grid energy use.
