Duncan is no stranger to the Sussex Heritage Trust having won awards in 1999, 2004, 2008 and 2013. Since establishing his practice in Sussex in the nineties, Duncan has developed a strong body of work that shows great sensitivity to the context in which he is working, with a particular emphasis on the Sussex vernacular.
One of his earliest projects, The Deer Tower in Shillinglee Park enhances and extends a romantic folly in an original Italianate Gothic style. An example of his work in the Sussex Vernacular can be seen at Grittenham Farmhouse, a 2004 Sussex Heritage Trust award winner. And, in the more formal setting of a large country house, Duncan has added a classical pavilion which was a 2008 award winner.
Duncan’s life work has been spent enriching the built heritage of Sussex, the warmth of personality and strength of relationships he has developed and the generosity he has shown in passing on his knowledge. Some of Duncan’s works are shown below.
