PROPERTY Crest Nicholson unveils new showhome at Harrington Mews Award-winning housebuilder, Crest Nicholson, launched its brand new four-bedroom showhome, the Browning, at Harrington Mews in Horsham this September. The launch event, offering exclusive tours of the property, was attended by a host of local dignitaries as well as house-hunters, looking for their perfect home in Horsham.  Harrington Mews is an exclusive collection of traditionally designed four and five-bedroom family homes, neighbouring some of the finest countryside West Sussex has to offer and just outside the sought-after town of Horsham. Christine Tiernan, sales and marketing director, Crest Nicholson South, comments: “We’re delighted to open our brand new Browning showhome; there is huge demand in the Horsham area for new family homes so we’re expecting to see strong interest for these spacious, family-friendly properties. We’re also offering part exchange on the Browning to encourage those looking for more space for their growing family to trade up.” Harrington Mews is well connected via both road and rail, just over a mile and a half from Horsham train station with its regular commuter routes to London and Croydon and connections to Gatwick Airport. The development is also less than two minutes away by car from the A24, joining the M25 at Junction 9 connecting drivers to the South and West coast. Prices for the Browning at Harrington Mews, Farthing Hill, Horsham, start from £649,950. For further information on part exchange visit the marketing suite, open daily 10am to 5pm, or www.crestnicholson.com/harringtonmews. House building for the future with 3D design: Chichester based architects lead the way in 3D technology Well known for their innovative use of photorealistic visualisation, local architectural practice jbA is now pioneering the use of 3D printing throughout its design process. Using cutting edge 3D printing technology, the firm can create detailed 3D printed models made from PLA plastic. The models are created on the latest AirWolf 3D printer that enables the team to print scaled models of buildings and internal rooms. Nat Ellis, head of 3D visualisation, comments: “Having a 3D model helps with any questions about the scale, placement or features of the design and makes the whole design process much smoother for our clients. Gone are the days of only using 2D CAD plans to explain projects to clients and contractors. Now all of our projects benefit from the creation of 3D visualisations or 3D prints whether it be initial feasibility all the way through to planning and construction.” jbA has also launched a new service offering clients a 1:50 scale printed 3D model of their proposed kitchen. The printed kitchen units give clients the unique opportunity to design 95 their kitchen from scratch and get a feel for space and size before placing an order. One recent client commented: “No matter how carefully architectural drawings are explained, it is often hard to visualise how rooflines or proportions will look, particularly to lay people like us. The 3D models mean that we can look at the house from every angle, and see exactly where it will sit on the plot. It has brought the whole project to life for us, and we are very much looking forward to the next stage of its construction!” With the firm’s forward thinking use of 3D technology, they have successfully set themselves apart from other architects and have become internationally recognised for their proficiency in this area with Nat Ellis being invited to speak at prestigious events including the 2014 3D Visualisation seminar in Tokyo, and attended the 3D SketchUp Basecamp Conference in Vail.
