Contemporary Mobile Home in the UK’s New Forest Woodland

PAD Studio’s Forest Lodge is a contemporary mobile home that looks nothing like you would expect.  The architect described it as having a “feeling of solidity, serenity, and permanence” in The Architects’ Journal, which are not words commonly associated with spaces that conform to the 1968 Caravan Act.

Large windows and a glazed wall along part of the western face of the home break up its unstained chestnut paneling and make the home feel connected to the beautiful environment of its site.  The large glass panels provide natural light and draw attention to picturesque views.  Muted colors and clean lines used inside add to this emphasis placed on the outside world.

In addition to its contemporary appearance, the home adheres to modern ideas about sustainable living.  The house is constructed to PassivHaus standards and is at level four in the Code for Sustainable Homes.  Its design includes solar panels to ensure use of renewable energy and a rainwater filtration system.
