Spacehub are proud to have delivered the landscape for the award winning Caring Wood, a contemporary private house themed on the traditional Kent Oast. This innovative new build, set in rolling countryside, has been awarded the prestigious RIBA South East design and RIBA South East Sustainability Award 2017. MacDonald Wright Architects and Rural Office for Architecture worked in close collaboration to deliver this ambitious family legacy project.
The landscape wraps up and over the house embedding the home in its natural setting on an existing embankment. The landscape is purposefully understated yet works hard to seamlessly blend from garden setting to natural rolling landscape while delivering Code Level 6 for Sustainable Homes for ecological value.
We are thrilled Caring Wood has deservedly been recognised not only for the contemporary vernacular of the design but the exemplar sustainability credentials.
