Lake Cabin Featured In Architecture Journals
Our Lake Cabin project based in Braebourne, Kent has been featured in the architecture press including the Architects Journal.
The cabin is positioned on a lakes’ edge and has a cantilevered deck over the water.
The cabin is approached along a woodland trail. It is not accessible by vehicles.
The building has been designed as an exposed timber-framed structure. There are two full glazed elevations which angle out towards the lake and slide open giving views out across the lake and to the countryside beyond.
Externally the building is clad in a combination of rough sawn wide English oak plank cladding, and thin narrow-plained English oak cladding.
This is combined with a concrete datum line to the base of the building, which steps up to create a concrete bench and log store.
The roof, and roof trims are clad in a patinated bronze finish to contrast the natural wood, which is to be left unfinished to tarnish and weather with the landscape.
Royal Military Canal Development Under Construction
Our Royal Military Canal Development scheme at Appledore consisting of four new dwellings and a refurbishment of an existing Victorian mill are well under construction.
The scheme overlooks The Royal Military Canal and the surrounding National Trust land.
The houses have large open plan ground floors, with a kitchen dining space overlooking the private gardens. On the first floor there are 2 double bedrooms, one with en suite along with one single bedroom and on the second floor there is a large master suite with walk in wardrobe, en suite and a balcony terrace overlooking the canal.
The houses have been designed using traditional materials executed in a very contemporary method. External materials will include brick, clay tiles and Kebony cladding boards. The houses will each be heated via an air source heat pump and be highly insulated.
At the entrance to the site there is also a Victorian mill which is a key part of the scheme, facing the main road frontage. The proposals include a full restoration, refurbishment and extension of the mill to provide a commercial premises with café on the ground floor and office space above.
West Sussex Winery Accomodation Nears Completion
Our accomodation building at a West Sussex Winery, which has red corrugated metal roofing is nearing completion.
The building provides new accomodation for staff at the vineyard who look after the everyday running of the estate.
The timber frame structure was pre-fabricated and insulated in a local workshop to minimise disruption around the vines.
Natural larch cladding will complement the rusty red metal and when complete the houses will run off air source heat pumps combined with an MVHR system.
