Conservation Area, Abergavenny

Taylor Lane Timber Frame supplied its 140mm pre-insulated timber frame kit for a four-bedroom home in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in Abergavenny, Wales.

Loyn + Co Architects designed the property to maximise the views, organised around the site’s topography, orientation and access.  In response to the sloping nature of the site, the house sits across two levels.  The result is a series of connected spaces to eat, socialise and relax.

Timber plays a central role in the design of the house.  Alongside the timber frame structure, the homeowners used timber internally and externally – dark stained timber cladding complements the natural surroundings while vertical timbers emphasise the height and space of the interior.  Large format glazing is also a dominant feature; this and the timber cladding is juxtaposed by a large masonry chimney at the centre of the house.

 

This property featured in Grand Designs, special edition 06. 

Testimonials

Taylor Lane Services

"We have had a very good experience with Taylor Lane, with great service from start to finish. We especially enjoyed the tour of the professional factory."

5/ 5 Stars

"Taylor Lane were key to the design process. They do all the engineering calculations...and tell you if something’s possible or not, calculate the truss requirements etc. "

5/ 5 Stars

"We have a long history with Taylor Lane. They have worked with Lovell and been part of our supply chain for well over 15 years, that I know to. When I have visited Hereford (on a number of occasions), it’s a welcoming business that’s open, honest and transparent on all matters commercial, design, technical. We quickly derived confidence that they were the right choice for us...and that’s been vindicated by performance onsite thereafter."

5/ 5 Stars

"We had worked with them [Taylor Lane] previously and were happy to continue that relationship knowing the quality of the frame and the service that we would receive."
