Fishing Lodge by Simon Gill Architects
Completed in 2012, the Fishing Lodge was designed by Simon Gill Architects. This 3,122 square foot modern house is located in Batak, Bulgaria.
“The brief was for a four bedroom holiday house in the mountains of Bulgaria, overlooking a large lake, to be used as a base from which to launch fishing trips. The building’s form is generated by the particularities of the site and the extreme temperature range.
The bedrooms and bathrooms are built into the hill in order to maintain a constant temperature, whilst the living areas are in a highly insulated volume, gently curved and clad in dark timber in order to blend into the surrounding trees. The house thus reduces its impact on the natural setting and the environment generally, through its use of solar panels for hot water and a wood burning stove to power the central heating.”
