Tor Lodge, Sevenoaks
Situated in the heart of the Sevenoaks green belt, the scheme is for a proposed replacement dwelling. The clients commissioned OSG to design an exceptional private family home to replace the existing unsightly bungalow. Overcoming many planning restrictions on size, scale and mass, OSG successfully achieved the clients wishes. The accommodation is designed on a split level approach, with sleep accommodation on the upper level and living on the lower.
The concept was to provide clear division between these two spaces. This need created the idea of forming 2 specific design features in the form of bold shapes which work together but define differences in their accommodation. The sleeping accommodation form was inspired by a extracted linear element which is to sit up off the ground, to give the impression of floating above the ground level.
The main living space was to be a built form that complimented the sleeping ‘pod’ and simply connected into sleeping accommodation element.
