Leisure Development, Coln

The site consists of 160 hectares of old mineral workings comprising six former gravel extraction pits now restored as lakes. pad has been involved in the evolution of the masterplan and conceptual design proposals for the site to provide a new leisure focused development set around the lakes. The new leisure destination includes around 160 new retreat homes, a Country Park and a hotel. A team of architects and interior designers has designed the new retreat homes in a way that reflects and responds to their very natural setting and to promote a more energy efficient approach to construction and use. In addition to the masterplan, pad has provided support to this process with the evolution of conceptual unit designs through a modular design approach that can flexibly respond to different locations and orientations across the site.
