Informal relationships with the riverfront
South East Regional Award 2019
McLean Quinlan for private client
Contract value: Undisclosed
Internal area: 455m²
This house is sited on the banks of Fishbourne Channel in West Sussex – virtually among the boats and dinghies of Chichester Harbour. Developed with the client over time, the home is vernacular in form but contemporary in detail. Main rooms are contained in a double bay volume built in flint, while the secondary functions are housed in wings of brick. The main living room has glorious views across the water to the north and the garden and tennis courts to the south. Both composition and materials sit extraordinarily well on the site, generating informal relationships with the riverfront, adjacent buildings and a newly designed garden. This is a remarkably consistent and friendly work of architecture.
