Lewes East Sussex


The house is designed by architect Sandy Rendel and was completed in 2015, it won some of architecture’s most prestigious awards including the RIBA 2017 National Award, a RIBA South East Award and the Sunday Times British Home Award 2016 for the ‘best one-off home in the UK’. A simple palette of materials emphasises the building’s form and reflects the qualities of the site and its surrounding environment. The continuous Cor-Ten skin that covers the roof and upper floor, is an appropriate reference to the site’s light-industrial past and echoes the soft red-clay brickwork of Lewes’ attractive local vernacular. Lewes is for sale through Modern House.
