An Inspirational, Modernist Home; go behind-the-scenes of some of the UKs best new buildings

Crowbrook, an inspirational, modernist home created by Knox Bhavan Architects, has been designed as a place to live, work and to enable guests to stay in comfort. The home is fully accessible throughout. This requirement has been expanded into a design approach that considers the house and garden as a world of its own: a place in which it is easy to spend time without feeling the need to escape.

The detailing and material palette, lend the house a distinctly mid-century modern feel. This, combined with the well-established garden, makes it quite possible to imagine the house has been lived in and carefully looked after by its owners for many years.

Join us to discover how this national award-winning development was conceived and achieved, network, enjoy the last talk of the Series with an early evening drink and mince pie! There will be an opportunity to discuss your thoughts about the building with the project architect Sasha Bhavan of Knox Bhavan.
