Fox Lodge is a contemporary eco-house built in 20 weeks at the heart of the Leicestershire conservation village of Foxton.
Externally the house had to be carefully designed to prevent overlooking and maintain mutual privacy between the new and adjacent properties. The barn conversion appearance on two sides embraces the traditional style of the period residencies.
By way of contrast the other contemporary elevations showcase its eco-house character, providing ample natural light via full length glazing and has a fibreglass decked balcony.
To aim was to create innovative contemporary accommodation in a rural village whilst maximising sustainability via the materials selected, energy sources, heat loss, airtightness and minimised running costs, maintenance and repairs.
Using zinc on the fascias, rainwater goods and roof all help to minimise future maintenance and lifetime costs.
Areas of full height glazing, a concealed light well and stairwell glazing add to the ambiance of the largely open plan living space on the ground floor. The patio doors to one bedroom provides access to the extensive balcony with magnificent countryside views.
The structure’s design is future-proofed to allow the creation of a ground floor bedroom with en-suite.
