Plymbridge Cycle Hub


Client: National Trust

Value: £450,000

Location: Plymbridge, Devon


Working closely with the National Trust and 1 South West Cycling, we have designed a new cafe and cycle hub at Plymbridge Woods on the outskirts of Plymouth. Local and natural materials will be used throughout the scheme. On the elevations this will be evident in the use of timber cladding (larch sourced from the neighbouring Cann Woods) and stone (locally sourced slate from the nearby quarries). This will help to embed the design into its natural and historical context. 


Due to the elevated nature of the train track and cycle trail, the roof becomes a fifth ‘elevation’. As a result it will be a bio-diverse green roof, using native woodland and meadow plants to help it blend in with its surroundings. Timber clad rooflights penetrate the roof-line, bringing natural light deep into the building.
