    Default Fishing Lodge in Bulgaria

    Fishing Lodge by Simon Gill Architects

    London-based architectural firm Simon Gill Architects has designed the Fishing Lodge. Completed in 2012, this 3,122 square foot contemporary house in Batak, Bulgaria, was built partially into the hillside in order to reduce the impact on the landscape and the environment. 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.

    Love it! Perfect country cottage and the modern design is fantastic (not haughty or ridiculous at all.) I'd be there every weekend.

    Why is there a basin and tap on a plinth at the bottom of the stairs? Hand washing? Drinking? Otherwise it's soulless but I guess it's rented out so it has to be fairly frill-less.

    Just because you're offended doesn't mean you're right.
