Red Kite Tree Tent: The Independent- May 21, 2016

Calling all campers: we've officially entered the dawn of an exciting new camping era. The elusive tree tent is born: a spherical canvas structure suspended by rope high up in the trees.  Sounds ominous?  Actually it isn't. Instead it's sort of beautiful, in a futuristic orb kind of way. The tent is located on the outskirts of a dense woodland – in the grounds of the similarly alluring Red Kite Barn, as it happens – and as you walk down the gravelly hill towards the site, your new accommodation starts to take shape right before your eyes.

Coolcamping

Cool Place of the Day

Suspended in the trees like a giant green orb, Red Kite Tree Tent has a remarkable design and one that's not only cool and unique but also deeply luxurious. Inside a main support pole is a shiny centre piece, surrounded by a plush double bed and a cosy wood burning stove, while outside the sweet smell of pine trees is inescapable and the babble of a stream below only accentuates that secluded, wilderness feel.

Red Kite Tree Tent, Powys

"You'll be high as a kite at this new treetop hideaway. Tucked away in 80 acres of private woodland, the UK's first tree tent is the perfect love nest for two, with a double bed, log burner and a bird's-eye view of the surrounding Welsh forest, which attracts barn owls and red kites. It is wool-insulated, ensuring that it stays cosy year-round, and comes with its own streamside decked area with firepit and outdoor shower..."

Live your Grand Designs dream in famous curved tree house


EVER fancied living in one of the houses from the Channel 4 series presented by Kevin McCloud? Now's your chance.

Are you one of the millions of people who find yourself turning a shade of green whenever you watch Grand Designs? Have you ever wondered what it would be like to live in one of the inspired residential creations on the show? Now could be your chance. The famous Clapham "curved house", which appeared on series four in 2004 and then again in 2008, is available for rent.

If you didn't see the episode, the story behind this property centred, literally, around a giant chestnut tree.

When Anjana and David Devoy realised their Clapham home was becoming too small for their expanding family, they decided to make use of their large garden by building a house on the land.

Ladderstile House- ThreefoldArchitects

30 June 2009

Designed by ThreefoldArchitects, the Ladderstile House, an eco-friendly large residence in Richmond Park, London, is arranged around an internally landscape courtyard.  The home’s volumes open to external areas creating a unified residence with the exterior and interior complimenting each other.

Ladderstile House designed by London practice ThreefoldArchitects.
It's a large modern new build family home directly bordering Richmond Park and adjacent to the Ladderstile Gate. The land is the last remaining pocket of a once larger site associated with the original Ladderstile House, and retains an historic right to ‘ride out’ across the park holding a key to a private gate associated only with the house.

A kingdom for a horse

This luxury lair in Richmond Park has all the mod cons — and that’s just for Dobbin — but what are the odds of it selling? What makes a property fly into the minds of a buyer, lodge it there and inspire the transaction of thousands, if not millions, of pounds? It's a bit more complicated than making sure your home smells of baking bread. Although aroma has its place, along with location, presentation and timing. And though Ladderstile House - which is so intriguing that passers-by regularly walk in off the street for a quick gander - has all of the above, it doesn't have them in quite the proportions one might imagine.

Let me introduce you to David and Anjana Devoy. Both barristers, both 44, both from comfortable middle-class homes, but with a yearning to be different...

Grand Designs. but Will They Sell?

Mail on Sunday, 9 November 2008

Since Grand Designs hit our television screens almost ten years ago, it has followed dozens of homebuilders realising their dream of creating the perfect home. But that does not translate into an easy sale. At least five Grand Designs houses are now languishing on the market in spite of fulsome praise from Kevin McCloud, with one in Cheltenham being raffled off after it failed to attract a single offer.

In one of the most interesting projects on the programme, cameras followed David and Anjana Devoy, barristers. It's a unique home, and hard to value turned homebuilders, who in 2004 created a two- bedroom, wood- clad and glass structure in Clapham, South London.  The Curved House is now on the market, as the couple seek more space and plan to restore a house they have bought on the edge of Richmond Park, in South- West London. …

London: The Accidental Developers

The owners of one of the star homes of Grand Designs tell Zoe Brennan about getting bitten by the building bug — and their latest design project. As the owner of the curved house in Clapham — made famous in its own television programme — Anjana Devoy is known for thinking outside the box. Perhaps it is no surprise, then, that the star of Channel 4’s Grand Designs is now turning her hand to commercial property development, but with a twist...
