Project Description

Located in the heart of the Beaminster conservation area in West Dorset, the design comprises three contemporary timber pods, which are linked via glazed connections. 

Each pod has an external terrace and pergola above, with these external spaces all formed around mature oak trees giving a real sense of a house in the trees. The whole site is covered by a TPO but a structural post system minimises impact on tree roots. Construction of The Lodge was completed in 2012. 

The Building Regulations stage was continued by another local architecture firm.
