Eco-chic New Forest House by PAD Studio
British architects and interior designers PAD Studio have designed the New Forest Park House project. Completed in 2013, the contemporary eco-friendly home can be found in the south of England in the New Forest National Park.
According to the architects: “The replacement 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 in order that the proposals 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 and utilise ground source heat pump technology and a log boiler for heating and hot water requirements. Excavated material from the new basement and pool area has been re-used in the earth berming to provide a visual screen to the north and help to reduce the sound impact of the nearby dual carriageway.
“The proposals also incorporate 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.”
The interior design is modern, chic and luxurious. Adelto loves the main bedroom design with its wooden wall. The room has a minimal feel to it but doesn’t feel too sterile.
