Bluebell Cottage is a large detached private home that is situated in Crawley, Winchester. The garden receives sunlight throughout the day and is overlooked only by surrounding trees and fields. The active site is an old tennis court that requires replacement or a change of use. The proposal created a pool-house that is of a discrete nature, does not block views to the fields, is of minimal impact and provides fun/enjoyment for the family.

Tucked behind the existing garage the modern contemporary building sits along-side an external swimming pool. Linked via a raised timber path from the existing house, the path leads up to the pool and turns to take you into the single storey oak clad box. Comprising of a playroom, gym and shower room, this simple building will provide the required addition to the pool enabling it to be enjoyed by the whole family during the day or entertaining in the evening.

The client’s wishes to provide a sustainable building gave Adam Knibb Architects the chance to provide a sedum/green roof across the building giving habitat back to the wildlife. Timber cladding over a highly insulated building will provide a soft facade to the building whilst reducing the requirement for heavy heating. The design also will make use of prefabricated cross-laminated timber panels to provide a quick and efficient build process in order for the client to have use of the facilities by late spring.
