Extravagant Country Living: White Lodge Residence in England
Strikingly modern, the White Lodge residence developed by Dyer Grimes Architects in Tandridge, England combines luxurious country living with modern functionality. Originally home to a 1960’s detached bungalow surrounded by tall trees, the site was reinterpreted as to host this imposing 480sqm home. From afar, you can observe the hardwood cladding and white render with an abundance of glass throughout.
The architects decided to split the White Lodge residence in two main levels: “The glazed ground floor living space is surrounded by beautifully landscaped grounds, while the first floor appears to hover over the kitchen dining area as well as project over the swimming pool“. Sustainability was also a major factor to consider in the planning process, when an impressive target was set: to generate 20 percent of the energy required by using renewable energy sources. The objective was reached by using solar hot water collectors on the roof, an efficient drainage system and an air source heat pump.
