Keith Williams wins consent for West Sussex farmhouse

  • Comment

London-based Keith Williams Architects has won the go-ahead for a ’contemporary’ farmhouse in an area of outstanding natural beauty in rural in West Sussex

The 240m2 North Farm House scheme near Cowfold will be built within the courtyard site of a partially demolished large agricultural covered yard.

According to the practice, the two-storey building will become the ’farm estate’s nexus’ and sit at ’the centre of a cluster of three traditional farm buildings namely an 18th-century timber-framed barn, a brick built former dairy, and an [adjoining] 19th-century brick cottage’.

Keith Williams, the firm’s founder and director of design said: ’Securing permission for a contemporary house in the countryside is never straightforward and we are delighted that the project has been approved after some 18 months of careful and patient dialogue with the planners at Horsham District Council. We now plan to start the technical design phases and move toward construction in the new year.’
