Woodland Shelter

Dumfries House Estate, Ayrshire, Scotland

Designed during the Prince’s Foundation 2013 Summer School, this ten-sided structure was built by the building craft apprentices under the guidance of Jonny Briggs and other craft tutors.

A green oak framed lantern sits on a tower of rendered clay blocks and hand carved sandstone. Individually cut cedar shingles fan out from the centre of the roof, providing a fitting covering for a structure that sits in the heart of the Arboretum.
