These cabins will be available for rent as part of the farm’s long-term plan for diversification into the leisure industry yet combining greater access and enjoyment to the beautiful countryside.
Driven by the ethos heavily linked to nature and un-compromised quality we were commissioned to explore the possibility of each cabin being individual in its character and location while giving an intimate connection to its natural (and wild) context.
For the first cabin we have collaborated with architect Miller Kendrick with a brief for them to design a ‘wow’ cabin.
The result is this ‘The Invisible Shed’ concept. A space not confined by walls and mass that embraces the natural world and then through dynamic screens of silk, glass and shutters allow the guest to regulate modesty, comfort and nature dependent on their desires. This concept will allow a unique uninhabited connection to the the scent of apple blossom in the spring to an invigorating and energising morning bath in the dawn sunshine. Sensational!
The spaces need to be usable all year round (insulated therefore warm and comfortable). We are looking at insulated with wood fibre or Warmcell (recycled newspaper) which are environmentally sound plus giving good sound and thermal performance.
The customer experience will be heightened by the finest quality materials and fixtures within a considered context to the finishings and experiences.
Current Status: This project is currently at the planning stage.
