Ström bags planning for larch-clad New Forest holiday home

  • Comment

[First look + plans + data] Lymington-based Ström Architects has won planning permission for this 160m² holiday home near the New Forest National Park

The two-storey retreat replaces an earlier building on the rural site which has planning constraints on developments’ footprint and position.

The practice, which was founded by ex-John Pardey Architects director Magnus Ström in early 2010, proposes raising the building above the seasonally damp ground using a platform which includes a terrace and outdoor and indoor fireplaces.

The design also features a prefabricated timber structure to enable speedy construction and larch cladding which is expected to weather to a silvery grey.
