Vision – Founder’s Statement
“The development of this site
is predominantly determined by its context.
Our ambition is to respectfully restore
the site in a way that acknowledges its rich history,
its context amongst the contours of the downs,
and its proximity to the meandering river.
Consequently, all the architecture must be
an extension of the surrounding downscape,
in its shape, its colour and its feel.
Essentially: it must be OF it,
not simply ON it.”
Founder, The South Down Project.
