Barnsnap House


Re-Format has been granted planning permission for a  contemporary dwelling on a woodland clearing site within the High Weald Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

The architectural approach for the 5-bedroom, 350 sqm home is to break down the component parts into a collective of volumes which are pulled apart to maintain and reinforce views through the site. The result is a low impact intervention which conveys a perception of general openness and creates an intimate dwelling set ‘within’ the woodland landscape.

The one and two-storey volumes share a common language of vertical dark timber cladding while wildflower planted green roofs ensure that the house blends into the surrounding forest fringe.
