The architects of this beautiful Sussex Residence included the flair of minimalist design without compromising its value as a modern family home. This marriage of art and utility was one of the first private residence homes designed by the prestigious Conran and Partners. The white walls and sensible flat roofs serve more than just aesthetic purpose: this construction effort resulted in an environmentally friendly eco home in every right.
The front entrance leads directly into a large grand vestibule which smartly divides the family and formal portions of the contemporary home. Beautiful white expanses are interrupted by dashes of primary colors papered onto accent walls. Geometric and organic red objects are playfully mixed into interior environment providing bright discoveries in unexpected places.
Furniture, surfaces, and handrails are mostly comprised of rich hardwood tones of warm, light ochre. Storage is decoratively built in and flooded with the natural light of floor to ceiling windows. Contemporary chairs by Eames and Panton surround markedly more traditional tables.
Personal and family-oriented touches make this more than just a modernist home. The architecture and interior design both account for life which is full of color and motion- making the Sussex Residence a gallery for living art.
