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.

A new zero-carbon estate house set in 83 acres of landscaped garden and farmland near Maidstone.  A country home of outstanding quality  it is modern & sculptural in design yet remains infused with a spirit of regional identity.

The clients requested a a country home of outstanding quality, where three generations of the same family could live together.

During the 5 years that I worked on the house as project architect I managed a team of architects, designers, contractors and suppliers to coordinate the highly specialised technical design of the building and oversee its construction on site.

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.

I oversaw the technical design, detailing and construction of the project

Drawings

I use drawing, collage and modelling as a key tool to help clients visualise their ideas and for me to explain my thinking, design process and proposals.
