Meet the team behind Life Space Cabins


Jamie Wilson
Project Consultant/ Founder

Meet Jamie

Jamie is dynamic, full of energy and passionate about architecture, design and the instinctual childhood den nature of a cabin space. He is the driving force behind Life Space Cabins. He formed Life Space Cabins with the support of Carpenter Oak, his then long standing employer in 2015 along with the support and patience of his ‘first’ client Lisa & Gavin Chappell and his family and close friends. Since the very first seed of an idea he has wanted each space to have a ‘fun’ aspect. The fun represents itself through movement; a sliding ladder, a pivoting wall, a drop down side or a sliding roof. This gives Life Space a unique edge, as we can create a cosy retreat or through movement, a light and bright social space to enjoy a sunny evening. Jamie, his wife Kate and their son Ned have always been linked to small spaces; they have owned a number of VW Campervans and have ‘encouraged’ them on their travels around Europe and the UK. The camper's ability to transform from vehicle to a safe home probably being a nod to his future cabin passions. Contact Jamie 
Martin Turner
Martin Turner Director Life Space Cabins

Meet Martin

Martin started his career in catering working in many beautiful and prestigious places from palaces of London to the Cutty Sark and Tate Modern. After 12 months travelling, he moved with his wife Ness to Devon in 2002. Two boys followed plus a job heading up the catering at MET Office in Exeter and in 2008 and they opened the Tangerine Tree Cafe in Totnes. Having always been interested in design Martin decided to enrol on a wood course with Nick Cary, a local designer/cabinet maker, which he did for over three years. In 2017 Martin and Ness decided to shake their lives up a little. So they sold the cafe. They had owned a small woodland for a while, which became a place to escape to with their boys away from the stress of life. They would come home smelling of smoke, dirt under their fingernails and ready for a bath to soothe aching muscles. It was there that they decided to build their own cabin. Martin is keeping his eyes wide open to see what is next in life. Travelling and Cabins are on that list.

Meet Alex

Alex is a talented gem. A fully qualified architect with a drive to create interesting spaces. Alex came to Life Space Cabins via Carpenter Oak, where he undertook his apprenticeship in carpentry. This enthusiasm for craft is evident in his design approach, with a want to understand buildings and processes as much by hand as through digital design. With a Cambridge architecture schooling, Alex has worked for a number of London practices including the award winning Feilden Fowles Architects. This background has instilled an appreciation of a modern aesthetic, coupled with an exploration of crafted natural materials that imbues his architecture with a subtle longevity. The Wistman’s Cabin was a result of this refreshing exploration. Alex is a gentle character with a sharp mind. He is a focused individual and recently completed the Paris-Brest-Paris 1200km long distance Audax cycle event. Amazing! Contact Alex
