Title. Turner House Extension
Date. 2009
Location. Sussex
Project Info. Turner House Extension

Crossways is a detached house on a good-sized plot, conveniently sited in Cuckfield. The existing building was designed and built in the 1930s by the distinguished 20th Century architect, Harold Turner. The house is a good example of Turners design and as such the development is clearly focussed and sympathetic to the vernacular style. The house is not listed and is outside the local conservation area.

The client brief was for an energy efficient extension to the property to accommodate a growing family, updating the existing envelope as far as possible to incorporate renewable energy sources of heat and power, and water reclamation.  As domestic buildings account for around 50% of energy use in the built environment, this proposal demonstrates how we can sensitively improve the efficiency of older building stock in order to make a significant impact on reducing emissions and preserving water supplies.
