The Project

We have worked with this valued client for four years, starting with a glazed photographic studio and workshop, through to the barn and house refurbishment.

The photographic studio, workshop barn and pool house are all set in a stunning landscape setting, which fully complement the historic listed farmhouse.

At Nicholls we are experienced in full build briefs taking a client through the design process through to completion of their project.

Judge’s citation from Sussex Heritage Trust Awards.
“A well-considered and superbly executed project. Particular praise should be given to the ‘new build’ elements of the scheme and the sensitive setting of the overall complex within the landscape.”

Client Testimonial


“Nicholls recently renovated two outbuildings (formerly the coach house and stables) into a workshop for my husband and a studio for me. In short, the finished result is way beyond our wildest expectations. Their combination of vision, knowledge and experience, craftsmanship and attention to detail has helped us to transform two dark and forgotten little buildings into a truly breathtaking space. It is their ability to retain and restore the intrinsic character and structure of the building, whilst blending it seamlessly with the most contemporary elements of construction and design, that has enabled them to breathe life back into these old buildings.

They are quite simply the best building company we have ever met and I can’t recommend them more highly.”
