Studio Meda unwraps £350,000 Shropshire pool

  • Comment

Emerging practice Studio Meda has completed this 165m2 timber-framed swimming pool and gym for a retired couple in the Shropshire Hills

The ‘distinctly contemporary’ £350,000 scheme in the historic village of Cardington, Church Stretton, is built on a sandstone base and features untreated timber cladding and oak window frames.

Studio founder Martin Ebert, a former associate director at David Chipperfield Architects, said: ‘The predominant building forms in the village, which dates back to the 11th century, are simple cottages built from local gritstone and barns clad in rough-sawn oak or larch board.’

‘The pool includes ideas from the local barn structures and strikes a balance between the local vernacular and creating a distinctly contemporary and independent structure.’

He added: ‘The simple timber framework provides a flexible structure opening up views to the surrounding hills’.
