M335 Additions and alterations to a house at Little Hedgecourt, East GrinsteadAddress: Copthorne Road, East Grinstead
Client: E. O. Hoppé,
These alterations and additions to a pre-existing cottage were designed by Mackintosh for his friend, the photographer E. O. Hoppé. Mackintosh proposed adding two wings (one containing a studio), linked by a pergola enclosing a small courtyard. The additions were to be vernacular in style, built of brick with hipped, tiled roofs. The scheme was not carried out, but there is evidence that some unspecified work was done for Hoppé to Mackintosh's designs.
Authorship: Drawings and diary entries by Mackintosh confirm that he designed the unexecuted wings-and-pergola scheme. Hoppé later told Thomas Howarth that some undistinguished work was actually carried out for him to Mackintosh's designs, but it has not been possible to identify the work in question.
Alternative names: Little Headgecourt, Hedgecourt House.
