PAD Studio completes £550,000 New Forest house

  • Comment

Hampshire-based PAD Studio has completed this two-storey home set within a woodland garden

The family home, designed and built for the owners of Spinners Garden, replaces a u-shaped stable block originally on the site.

The architect’s view

The building nestles into the slope behind and brings the stunning setting of Spinners Garden into the house. The design objective has been to create a new building that is articulate, yet economic in form. In keeping with the local context, it draws upon the vernacular language of the New Forest and interprets it in a contemporary manner. The replacement dwelling will enable the owners and their family to live and manage the garden and nursery from home, retaining a valuable and much enjoyed public amenity.

The design seeks to minimise the environmental impact of the building both during the construction and the life of the building by utilising a super insulated fabric and discreet renewable energy options. The architectural objective has been to develop a building whose form, scale, materials and detail reinforces the character, distinctiveness and history of the site both locally and within the wider context of the New Forest.
