Dragons by Rundell Associates

Dragons is a minimalist building located in East Sussex, England, designed by Rundell Associates. The client purchased a rather unprepossessing building apparently built in the 1960s which had fabulous views over the South Downs. A clue to its actual heritage was the existence of a tall Crittal window illuminating the full height of a concrete staircase, and further research uncovered the fact that it had in fact been but by Connell, Ward and Lucas a pioneering firm of architects who achieved significant recognition in the 1930s for their innovative designs and creative use of thin concrete walls; many of their buildings are now Grade 1 and 2 listed. This discovery inevitably informed many of the subsequent design decisions which were intended to remove the later additions and plastic fenestration that had almost completely concealed the original structure.
