Ghyll House, Southern England
Ghyll House is a large house on a rural site is East Sussex.
The Ghyll House is conceived as a 3-sided walled garden. Upon entry to the site, all you can see is a discrete wall in rammed earth, with carefully positioned openings. The house is then backed up against the wall on the inside of the walled garden. The accommodation on this floor comprises the living spaces, the master bedroom, kitchen, garage and other back-of-house spaces.
On three sides, the house reads as a single-storey building. On the north-west side, Strom Architects have made use of the sloping topography to insert a bedroom wing underneath. This allows the living room to jut out across this on the floor above with a dramatic cantilever. This gives the living room far-reaching views of the countryside.
On the highest point of the site, yet within the walled garden, Strom Architects have designed a small observatory, as the client is a keen amateur astronomer. This site was chosen specifically with this in mind, as it is one of the darker places in southern England.
The arrangement of the three-sided walled garden creates a sheltered courtyard for outdoor living. Outside of the this, the landscaping was an essential part of the design, and Strom Architects have worked closely with the landscape architect to include water features, new hedging and trees, as well as wildflower planting. This was an important strategy in ensuring an increase in bio-diversity across the site and ensure a landscape-led approach to the design.
