Case study – Upper Lodge

Homeowners, the Browns own a delightful plot of land on the outskirts of Bath stretching down the valley from the roadside to the river. A swathe of mature trees runs along the hillside providing a wildlife corridor and it is just above this treeline that Batterham Smith Architects have designed a super low energy, contemporary house.

It was important to move the house away from the roadside and the traffic noise and the result is a house that sits well set back from the road overlooking the treetops. It is set within a series of garden walls that stretch out into the landscape, providing privacy and terracing to the steeply sloping plot.
