Completed in 2021 in collaboration with Studio Abroad
90sqm, 1 Bedroom
Solid timber frame, hemp blocks
This timber framed house sits on the site of a former Hermitage in the grounds of an estate in Somerset. The new structure is inherently low-embodied carbon, using a natural material palette of locally sourced timber, hempcrete and wood-fibre insulation. Sheltered by mature beech trees, the building sits on simple flint foundations.
