New-build Office

Studio idir designed the office wing of this steel-framed storage warehouse. It is clad in timber from the trees of the surrounding woods, which was prepared at a local sawmill and fixed, untreated, straight onto the building, where it will be allowed to dry and weather naturally into a hardy rain-screen cladding.

Internally, the space is kept as open as possible and a mezzanine incorporated to maximise sense of space. Far infared heaters and a wood-burning stove combine to provide energy-efficient, responsive heating without the need for a boiler and with the maximum cosy ‘chalet-in-the-woods’ factor.
