The Old Brewery, Lewes

Added Value


ECE have successfully rejuvenated a derelict Grade 2 Listed building in the heart of Lewes to provide 12 new homes and over 450sqft of commercial space.

The scheme significantly enhances the setting of the listed building, protecting it for the future whilst respecting the surrounding resident’s amenity. The development recreated an original courtyard to the front of the building, providing turning space for the residents of Thomas Street. A link through to Davey’s Lane creates pedestrian permeability through the development.

The project has been designed to respect the setting of the National Park, using traditional Sussex architectural forms in a respectful but contemporary way, while ensuring that the materials and detailing are modern reflection of the listed building.
