Carl Turner reveals £2.4m neighbour for Farshid Moussavi's Hove house

  • 1 Comment

Work is set to start on this £2.4 million home designed by Carl Turner Architects in Tongdean Avenue, Hove

The black-brick scheme, described as an essay in ‘low-slung California Modernism’, is next door to a proposed five-bedroom home designed by Farshid Moussavi for her parents, which was approved earlier this year.

The 407m² villa is backed by up-and-coming developer Baobab Developments and will feature exposed steel trusses and ‘raw’ concrete walls.

Paul Templeton of Baobab Developments said: ‘The house [embodies] low-slung California Modernism, with expanses of glass, concrete and steel, arranged over three wings wrapped around a swimming pool.

‘There are elements of Turner’s stealth barn here too, with the black brick bedding it down into the landscape, and the grasses and wildflower roof hiding it from view.’

Construction is due to begin next month and complete in August 2018.
