Hawkchurch Resort and Spa
Hawkchurch Resort and Spa is a new build resort and spa. NBDA were appointed to design a bespoke new build amenity building containing restaurant, bar, reception, gym, spa featuring treatment rooms, sauna and steam room and spa pool. The architectural concept behind the building was “contemporary barns in the landscape”. Building materials were kept to a simple pallet of local brick and flint, oak, zinc, and glass. The interior design was also bespoke and designed in conjunction with interior design partners. All of the interior joinery, feature timber ceilings and paneling, bar design, reception desks, feature rafts etc. was detailed in house by NBDA. The construction of the building was done to a very compressed programme, as such the main contractor was appointed via negotiated tender, and the construction methods chosen due to speed of construction on site. The building has since won numerous awards including “the best lodge escape in Devon, Somerset and Devon” and been shortlisted for the CIBSE Building Performance Awards.
