The Stables

Oak framed house near Rudgewick.

The equine site had no history of residential use. Any domestic property would need to have a very low visual impact. Inspired by the layout of existing stables, the new dwelling was designed to look as if it had been converted from an old stable block.

The plan of the building mirrors the existing stables to form a horse shoe of rooms around an inner courtyard. The inner facing walls are fully glazed and invite entry, whilst the outer walls are punctured with smaller openings to provide and maintain privacy.

The overall design is based on a modular Oak framed structure with in fill wall panels in glass, rustic brickwork and horizontal weather boarding, topped with a low pitched slate roof.
