Woodside Stables

Acres Architects was approached by a land owner who wanted to realise the dream of a rural countryside home. However there was no precendent for residential development on the land they owned by their stables. The equestrian themed Woodside Stables was located in a beautiful rural setting within Staffordshire’s green belt. We wanted to maximise the view over the water as well as ensure the design was appropriate for the setting. Due to the site being almost entirely ‘enveloped’ in woodland, we felt a concept focused on a timber facade would also relate well to the site.

Due to the desire from the client for a ‘different way of building’, we advised upon the idea of Prefabricated timber laminate structure providing exceptional thermal performance and structural rigidity and ease of construction through the ‘Lego’ connection style construction method. This also provided exposed timber to the internals of the property creating a modern winter log cabin cosy feel. An external deck was also added out over the water to provide a vantage point to focus on the views over the water.

If you’re looking to start a new project we’d love to hear from you. Call 0115 838 9738 or email
