Although un-listed, the lodge was the only remaining structure associated with a large and significant villa, demolished shortly after World War II. It had been subjected to ill-advised and crudely executed extensions in the early 1970s. Once these were stripped away, the lodge was taken back to its essential structure and extensive stone repairs carried out.
The design and detailing of the renovated lodge were then used to inform the design of the replacement house. The new house was also re-oriented to make the most of the corner site and some 80 linear metres of dry-stone walling was either renovated or newly-built to provide both privacy and structure to the gardens.
What we did: design & consents, project management, general & specialist building.
