Hurley and Hughes’ Kentish house draws on agricultural vernacular


In no way should my comment be regarded as a criticism of this rather charming project; but as a concern over the inadequacy of the outdated and convoluted Building Regulations to address modern standards of construction and safety. Those winding stairs!!!! Absolutely hazardous! Essentially creating a three riser drop just where Granny is most likely to tread when unsteadily clambering down for breakfast. True, the Building Regulations require a minimum tread of two inches in such a condition; the much more clear and comprehensive IBC/IRC require six inches, and thus provides yet more evidence of the need to adopt this modern and comprehensive code.
