Cedar Lodge: contemporary timber & zinc clad houses

Cedar Lodge contemporary timber & zinc clad houses (1)

Located in Winchester, Hampshire, The Cedar Lodge is a project completed in February 2015 by Adam Knibb Architects.

The architect’s description: The brief was to replace an existing garage with a pair of semi-detached contemporary timber & zinc clad houses in Winchester, Hampshire which would accommodate 2 bedrooms, bathroom and living accommodation. The proposal provides parking whilst making use of the south facing aspect for amenity spaces. The design, which takes it initial form from local urban houses, is a simple rectangle with a pitched roof. The building has allowance for parking underneath. The structure, which only shows it narrow façade to the road is clad in contemporary style with vertical timber and zinc roof.

It was important to provide natural light without large amounts of glazing to the south (to stop over heating and for privacy). The design shows a single window to the lounge area and a glazed apex to the first floor. The apex allows light to the bedrooms but stops over looking. Controlled views have been accounted for so that privacy for the neighbours is ensured.

The vertical timber cladding has been used to provide a soft and sympathetic visual element to the building. Over time the cedar will weather to a silver so to disappear into the vegetation and fence lines. The zinc roof profile mirrors those on the St. Giles hill directly above the site. The mid grey colour will provide an unobtrusive element. The building will sit on a white rendered base to link the building forms into the ground and road scene.
