New House, Sussex Downs,

This pioneering design is built in the memory of the Honourable Brenda Carter, herself a pioneer of solar energy research. It is on the site of her home on the Sussex Downs which burnt down in 1968.

She worked with Ray Maw, a solar energy expert, and then with Robert Adam to prepare a new design which combines traditional architecture with the latest developments in the use of passive solar energy. After her death in 1993, her son Harold continued the project in her name.
