Lake View Lodge: Somerset

The conversion of a redundant agricultural building on an exposed hillside with far reaching panoramic views over the Chew Valley AONB.

The brief was to convert and extend the existing buildings in a contemporary manner to provide a long term home for the Client’s growing family.

The house will be read as a low lying horizontal form that visually ‘connects’ with the surrounding landscape. The simplicity of the form is in keeping with the building’s historical and agricultural past. The material palette has been deliberately restricted and carefully selected to complement the rural setting. The conversion includes a basement extension which represents an increase in development volume of 38%.
