Planning granted for a contemporary style house in Ansty


LCE Architects are delighted to announce that we have successfully gained planning permission for a 500m² dwelling in Ansty, Haywards Heath.

Westup Farm Cottage is the replacement of a tired prefabricated bungalow with a newly designed five bedroom house and riding stables in the East Sussex countryside.



Evoking traditional forms of buildings associated with the site’s rural location, the proposal has a number of pitched roofed forms that combines a sleek 1.5 storey contemporary metal clad ‘barn’ volume with several brick structures, to create a striking courtyard arrangement in the heart of the site.

The interior plan of linked spaces provides an open flow through the building, but is grounded with the main access that runs through the scheme linking the living and sleeping accommodation, the front garden to the entrance courtyard and the stable block and manège beyond.



The main living area and master bedroom are orientated to the south taking advantage of the views, whilst a wing of sleeping accommodation looks out to the open field to the west. To the rear a garage and stable block complete three sides of the entrance courtyard.

We look forward to developing the design through the next stages of the scheme.
