Cedars Lodge Studio
Complete, 2015

 

Over a period of years since 1996, the previous occupants had removed period details whilst screening the building from the road with fences and vegetation. ​

Our proposal for the Blackheath lodge house looks to re-instate many of the lost details whilst restoring the hierarchy of the primary elevation as a gatehouse and creating a number of new spaces through small iterative interventions. A cedar clad timber extension forms the main living space. A small infill to the side creates a third bedroom with an an artists studio. A new courtyard is formed in the centre of the plan with introduction of a study to the north.
