Situated in Rye, East Sussex, the two houses provide space for living and working for two fictional characters. The site is divided in two uneven parts by the town’s medieval wall. The larger part of the site is occupied by the houses and their private gardens, while the smaller part towards the west is occupied by a shared shingle garden inspired by the shingle beaches of Dungeness to which the characters are connected through an earlier project.
