Gallery: Caradoc’s Hideout: A Fetching Hut Made From Recycled Materials...

From the inside looking out!

Like us, you are probably instantly drawn to the pavilion’s beautiful roof. The neatly-laid tiles are made from recycled rubber and are completely child safe, and the roof gets its curved shape from circular hoops made from locally-sourced ash battens and larch. Sustainably retrieved Bone Oak was used for the framing and the amazing stonework was done by a resident stonemason, who used Blue Pennant stone also picked up from the surrounding landscape.

Flooring is laid with rubber surfacing taken from Nike trainers/sneakers, further ensuring that even the smallest little child, including Jenny’s own, can feel free to play to their heart’s content in this endlessly sustainable structure. If you haven’t already checked out our coverage of the design weekend run in part by Crafted Space earlier this year, you won’t regret doing so now. There’s plenty more goodness where Caradoc’s Hideout came from!
