Fairlight Housing, HastingsThursday, 14 January 2016 / Projects
MBA are designing 16 new homes in Fairlight, near Hastings, Sussex, working with developers Gemselect, who have been developing award winning buildings throughout Kent and East Sussex for nearly 20 years. The Fairlight housing project will provide 16 new homes built to high standards of sustainability, on a constrained and wonderful valley site set one hill back from the sea. Extensive consultation has been carried out with the local planing authority and with residents to ensure the right level of development and that the design properly reflects the local character. MBA made a careful study of local Sussex vernacular housing and tile hanging in order to arrive at a 21st century version of the traditional Sussex house.
