The Small House, Brighton
The Small House was originally built in the early 1800's. It is a Grade 1 listed, historically important property located to the east of Brighton.
Between 1919-1920, substantial internal and external works were carried out on the property by the well renowned Architect Sir Edward Lutyens for his client Lady Vita Sackville-West, an English poet, novelist, and garden designer.
The works included the creation of a rear brick built vault space that was originally created to form a connection from the house to a bespoke garden, designed at the time in collaboration with the British horticulturist and garden designer Gertrude Jekyll.
The vault link lay largely undiscovered / lost over the years, but now forms the basis of the proposed alterations and improvement works on the house.
Working with Dangerfield Construction, we have been commissioned to design the garden using inspiration from the historic design and planting list.
