Carbon Neutral Lodges, Mercia Marina

As part of the Marina development, we were appointed to design a series of holiday home lodges. Working on the back of the success of the Chandlery building we wanted to create holiday lodges that interacted with the landscape and provided a sustainable solution in a none urban environment.

The outcome was to design contemporary holiday lodges which utilised similar materials to the Chandlery with a sedum roof and timber boarding. The Lodges were to be designed to be Carbon Neutral with no requirement for heating. A central fireplace was included to add a holiday feel.

The long-term outcome was for the Marina to install off-the-shelf log cabins the reason for this decision was financial.
