White Lodge by Dyer Grimes Architects

The White Lodge is a home designed by the practice of Dyer Grimes Architects with a highly modern look which offers all the luxury of the city life along with the peace and quiet offered by the country life.

Located in Tandridge, England, the site for the building was originally a detached bungalow with trees surrounding it and a good view of the Surrey Downs district which still has a lot of traditional homes with pitched roofs.

The construction permit was problematic to obtain since the proposed project was unprecedented in the area and also had to be submitted to the strict Tanbridge Council requirements, while the site also offered some problems with the sight due to its slopes.

The designers created a very modern home which covers a surface of 480 square meters and takes advantage of the latest technologies and materials to provide a highly efficient residence. The White Lodge is also friendly to its environment through the use of solar hot water collectors on the roof, a sustainable drainage system, an air source heat pump and renewable energy sources to produce some of the energy required.
