Wilkinson King unwraps cross-laminated timber house

  • Comment

Wilkinson King Architects has completed this three-bedroom timber house in the South Downs, Sussex

‘Inspired by its rural context’, the two storey house ‘echoes the horizontality of the meadows, vineyards and hills’ of the surrounding Downs.

Living spaces are placed on the ground floor with glazed southern and western elevations to allow views across the landscape.

Above this, the first floor is entirely constructed from cross-laminated timber, which is expressed internally as a faceted roof that ‘mimics the form of the distant hills’. internally the first floor elevations are also finished in timber.

The building is entered from a formal landscaped garden to the north, with a small sunken garden accessed from the master bedroom to the east .
