1950s bungalow


Hawton Mead advised extensively on the eco-refurbishment of Sheepfair, a 1950s residential property in Lewes. The house’s energy performance was improved to such an extent that it is now listed as a Superhome.

Heritage PropertyImproving the energy efficiency of heritage buildings is always a challenge, but Hawton Mead found ways of dealing with damp and introducing energy-saving measures in this grade 2* manor house.

mixed development

Mixed DevelopmentFor a mixed development in London, Hawton Mead worked with an architect, developer and associated team, not merely to meet the local council’s stringent energy requirements, but to reduce energy demand and carbon emissions by a further 20%.

new build house

Mallory RoadWorking with Turner Associates architects, planning permission was obtained for a small family home in the rear garden of a detached house in Hove. It was not possible to achieve Code for sustainable homes level 5 in this instance as the vernacular of the new house had to tie in with the vernacular of the existing houses in the road.

residential development

Hawton Mead worked with Turner Associates Architects to gain planning permission for City Park, a residential development in Brighton and Hove. Our design was a finalist in Integrated Design's 2010 Competition, in which the judges admired the elegant way in which a green roof was incorporated into "a very well mannered scheme that would fit well into an existing residential neighbourhood".
