RIBA Award winner, 19th of May 2011

Mission Hall is a small house situated on a bend in the road on the site of a sunken Baptist chapel, housed between a large oak tree and a drovers way, with long Sussex views to the West.

Structurally, two slim offset buildings are joined by an entrance and stair. The interior of this home is a delight; downstairs is solid and secure, cave-like black stone with niches and white brick barrel-vaulted ceilings and lots of oak cupboards. Upstairs is airy and light, with irregular oak floor boards and full height four metre windows in deep reveals. This is beautiful design on a small, difficult site: simultaneously complex and simple. An accomplished and unique piece of architecture.
