Court Lodge 


Court Lodge is a new build contemporary take on a traditional farm house which replaces the existing 1950’s workers cottage. The building has been designed for a local farmer in Old Romney near Rye, East Sussex. The main building takes a vernacular agricultural barn form, with a seamed zinc roof and a combination of natural and clack timber cladding.


The outbuilding which contains a detached farm office, garden store and covered car canopy is positioned at 90 degrees to the main house to create a court yard feel to the approach.


The house has been designed to suit the environment, with the marsh location being prone to high levels of prevailing wind. The courtyard formation and orientation is designed to reduce the impact of the marsh winds with windows being positioned to frame the views out. The design also incorporates an air source heat pump with solar which combined with the high levels of insulation will result in a building with very low running costs and C02 emissions.


The project is due to start on site in early 2020
