Client: Daisybank Cottage Boutique Bed & Breakfast
Project Year: 2014
Cost: £0 - £100kDaisybank Cottage was built in 1901 and is situated in the heart of the New Forest. The main cottage on the site is an award winning Boutique Bed & Breakfast and boasts some beautiful Arts and Crafts architectural features. PAD were commissioned to renovate the original 'gardeners cottaged located to the rear of the property expanding accommodation.
The design objective was to both retain the simple and rustic vernacular qualities of the garden cottage whilst making efficient use of space and natural light. Locally sourced New Forest timber boarding and a corrugated fibre cement sheet were used for the building’s exterior complementing the existing cottage and vernacular New Forest architecture. Additionally to the garden cottage building, PAD Studio designed a landscape scheme to improve and further enhance the relationship between the main house and cottage.
The project recently featured on the BBC television program 'Building Dream Homes' which aired on BBC2 in July 2014.
