Architects: Studio Arc
Project: Small Holiday Cottage – The Hide
Location: Cornwall, United Kingdom
Photography: Unique Homes Stays

The client brief was to design a unique small holiday cottage inspired by a ‘bird hide’ concept, nestled within the wild gardens of a Listed thatch cottage. The Hide establishes its language from a dilapidated outbuilding originally located within the site.

Its form is simple and uncluttered and it displays earthy, rustic materials including silvering wood shingles and aged concrete render which will weather in time. Window openings are simple in form, and like the character of a bird hide blurs boundaries between in/outdoors to allow observation of wildlife at close quarters.

A series of peep hole windows are designed to replicate dappled sunlight gleaming through trees and two large angled suspended windows provide an abundance of daylight within the property by day, and the delight of stargazing at night.
