Throughout the project the client sourced much of the interior finishes and fixtures directly from salvage yards and online second hand boutiques. The main living space features a wood-framed corner window, referencing an open book set into the wall at the height of a desk.

The house is decorated with reclaimed materials, referencing the worn and weary effect of time spent on the beach or at the sea side.

The landscaping has been designed to alleviate the flood risk, whilst also encouraging native species to take over the new timber structure that is directly connected to the house. This approach was taken to help plant the house in its surroundings, which is vital given the local connection to the Sidlesham Nature Reserve.

Back inside, and there’s stairs leading to the upper floor of the home. A skylight helps to bring in natural light to the space.
