Sorrel House is an iconic 1960s deckhouse designed by architects David Thomas and Peter Foggo, which was listed grade II* in July 1998. In 1998 the original owner George Scott approached David Thomas to extend the house. By this time David had retired as a director of Arup Associates. Therefore, having first designed the extension and gained planning permission, David approached Foggo Associates and through Foggo’s Lee/Fitzgerald Architects, to develop the construction information for the project and manage the build. In association with David Thomas and Foggo Associates, Lee Fitzgerald were responsible for the extension and upgrading of this seminal mid 20th century house. The project earned an RIBA regional award for excellence in architecture in 2002.
