Beacon Point House

Beacon point: Longhill Road - Ovingdean

Landivar Architects have collaborated with Derek Thompson to deliver a four bedroom self build eco house on the fringe of the South Downs National Park, overlooking the English Channel.

The detached two-storey timber frame house sits within a new build plot on the South East corner of Longhill Road. Clad entirely in untreated larch, the large family house is designed to work with the exposed nature of the site - to age and weather naturally. The House mediates between a traditional formal language of it’s locality with a contemporary pallet of PPC Aluminium windows, frameless glass balustrades and timber claddings.
