Nestled in an area of ancient woodland next to Ashdown Forest in East Sussex, the Red Bridge House by Smerin Architects sits on a hillside overlooking a stream and surrounding farmland. A folded steel plate bridge leads to the box-like residence which features a large covered verandah out the back and living areas split over three levels. Timber, oxidized steel and polished concrete form the main design elements of the modern yet environmentally sustainable house. An indoor swimming pool on the rear lower level opens up to the outdoors via sliding glass doors, merging interior and exterior space.
