Maple Lodge, Southern England

Maple Lodge is a replacement dwelling in a Meadowcroft Conservation Area to the south of Leicester. It won RIBA East Midlands Award 2023

Proposal replaced the existing dwelling arranged over two stories with a large detached garage to the west of the site keeping within the footprint of the previous building. The site has a significant level change from north to south with about 3 metres difference from the road level to the rear garden. This means the dwelling appears as a single storey from the road but two storeys from the garden.

The proposed dwelling is conceived as a contrasting but complementary contemporary design in relation to its setting within the conservation area. It is of modest massing, appropriate scale and use high quality materials.

The materials are selected to complement each other in their colour and provide a variation of textures and a calm peaceful aesthetic influenced by mid century Scandinavian precedents. The materials will be used to articulate the composition of the proposals with heavier materials such as concrete and brick being used on the lower levels to form the base and timber and metal being used on upper levels where the house will appear more lightweight. This combination of materials elevates the proposed dwelling to enhance the character of the conservation area in comparison to the existing dwelling.

The landscaping is improved to the sides and rear of the plot whilst the trees and hedges adjacent to the road are maintained.
