I read the Rusty House won a commendation in the Telegraph's Home Building and Renovating Awards. It seems the house is receiving some architectural merit. What do the people of Lewes feel about that?

Tricky one to separate personal feeling from rational reasoning.
I have seen the program and the cost, given the size (small for cost), location (not my first choice as too open with poor access - my cats would be dead in a week living there) and end result (usual and quite striking), I feel it does deserve some merit. But if I had spent that much and ended up with that house in that location I would feel disappointed.

I really can't see what all the fuss is about, it looks like a car showroom to me and just because it has rusty metal for a roof doesn't make it architecturally exciting.
Culverwells is more attractive in my opinion

I actually love the design. I love the colour of it, i like the glass and i love the location.
Don't know why, can't put my finger on it but i love it.

However, I will never forgive it for obscuring the view of the very attractive pink house next door. That house is so lovely and, to me, epitomises the best of Lewes. It set the scene for people arriving in Lewes, and always made me feel I was back at home when I drove into town via the tunnel.
To lose that lovely aspect to a "rusty shed" was a tragedy.

Snap Annette. I work in Eastbourne and the pink house and the chalk cliff with shades of sunset lighting it up as I head towards the tunnel have always been a big part of the return home. Good-bye Eastbourne, hello Lewes. It's quite a cool house though. I'll adapt.

I quite like it. You'd have to put some curtains up though wouldn't you?

I love it. All the more so because it annoys the narrow minded and small of brain.

But what about the whistling in the wind? A major design fault.

Great. Impose noise pollution on your neighbours and passers-by! Think about it...

Go listen for yourself when the wind's blowing. I don't think it's at all times because obviously wind directions change – and a certain speed is necessary. But there's no secret about it.
