Meadowspace: Ciliau Aeron
Peeking out from a canopy of silver birches Meadowspace is a peaceful family space for yoga, meditation and art and a professional studio for massage and complementary therapies.
Reclaimed and recycled materials were used wherever possible. The walls are built from straw bales and rendered internally with mud dug from the field below to fit the client's brief of 'a soul space'. Light, airy, welcoming.

Extension of a traditional Welsh cottage and new plant room and store for the smallholding. The layout of the new buildings create a welcoming arrival point and private courtyard providing a cohesiveness and flow to a disparate collection of outbuildings.
The interior of the house was completely remodelled to express the traditional detailing of the cottage in a contemporary way that reflected the vision and energy of the forward thinking young family that live there.
