New Forest House by PAD Studio

New Forest House by PAD Studio | design thinking | Scoop.it

British architects and interior designers PAD Studio have designed the New Forest Park House, a contemporary and eco-friendly home located in the south of England.

 

According to the architects: “The dwelling is set within an 18.5 acre plot, located adjacent to ancient woodland and heath, within the New Forest National Park. The massing, form and orientation of the new building has been carefully conceived to minimise the impact on the site and its surroundings. The main dwelling and annexe building both have low rise green roofs. The buildings are orientated to maximise solar gain, using ground source heat pump technology and a log boiler for heating and hot water requirements."

The design also incorporates rain water harvesting, grey water recycling and a natural swimming pond to further increase biodiversity within the site. The materials used throughout are sustainable, durable and in harmony with the site and its surroundings.
