Beacon Stoves is a showroom for a wood energy appliance retailer in west Wales.
View of showroom from south elevation, with rear wall used as display for woodburning stoves. Slate wall houses biomass boilers ducted to plantroom behind.
The single storey showroom nestles into the bank adjacent to the adjoining dwelling, so as not to deprive them of the south westerly light.
The building is built from trees felled and harvested from plantation land owned by the client; the douglas fir frame was designed, and a cutting schedule prepared, prior to the timber arriving at the sawmill. The surplus timber was used for cladding or furniture, with the remaining sold on.
The internal layout provides a flexible open plan retail floor area linked to an office, plant room, WC and stock room. Glazing to the south and west provide views out over open countryside, whilst increasing solar gain during winter months.
The project was awarded RIBA Welsh Small Project 2012 & RIBA Welsh Architecture Awards 2012.
