River Cottage HQ in Axminster, Devon by Satellite Architects

Sunday, June 21st, 2015

Article source: Satellite Architects

It’s doing a lot with a little…the diagonal bracing of the timber and the curtain-walling sing off each other,

With focus on innovative design sustainable architecture, we at Satellite Architects have been working closely with River Cottage since 2005. River Cottage implements a fully sustainable policy on building materials, energy and carbon outputs and a fully recyclable policy on waste. We at Satellite Architects share an identical vision for the future of the design and built. At Satellite, sustainability is not seen as an added benefit to architectural design but as an integral part of the process.

Heatherlands Pool House in Devon, UK by Satellite Architects (designed with Vectorworks)

Saturday, April 14th, 2012

Article source: Satellite Architects

Heatherlands is a substantial addition to an existing house, built in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty on the Dorset Devon border. It responds carefully to the folding of the landscape and roof pitches of the existing house, The folds create splits which highlight views, both concealing and opening to them. A new living room forms a transition point between the old and the new, collecting reflected views and light. Situated to the West of the existing house, the structure takes the stance of a traditional outbuilding, acting as a paddock boundary whilst protecting the gardens. The addition defines a new approach to the building, entrance court and outdoor terrace to the South. Adopting a number of sustainable strategies the building includes passive ventilation, sustainable materials and highly insulated construction. The existing building is wrapped in shingle, which will weather together with the new larch rain screens, covering the addition.
