The initial conversation with the clients was simple. Similar to that of a Scottish Bothy (a small hut or cottage especially for housing farm labourers or for use as a hill/mountain shelter) Our clients wanted a cabin built on their land that could store tools and equipment and double up as a refuge should the weather turn.
As with all Life Space projects, the brief developed into something quite amazing. Upon a site a visit we discovered that they didn’t just want a simple rustic cabin in a field they wanted a beautifully designed space using considered materials that would withstand the weather and naturally blend into its surroundings.
It wasn’t just any field it was a steep Devon hillside that entailed driving trucks through four fields until they reached the stunning location of the Dart estuary.
In our opinion the perfect challenge!
