Keilder Water | Ardgour Estate

One of a collection of even smaller bespoke Echo  cabins, the first tiny Stargazer was commissioned by Ardgour Estates as a space where visitors could have a night cap, watch the woodland wildlife and gaze at the stars. It went on to win Channel 4's Shed of the Year 2017.


Northumbrian Water’s site on the banks of Keilder Water is home to  a second Stargazer that sits the edge of the pine forest with a beautiful view across the water and the Northumbrian landscape. A third was designed for a writer and has a spiral plan, allowing it to be elevated inside to create a small space with an elevated view.

With solar LEDs  and timber lined interiors, the 2.9m diameter structures  sit off the ground on 'milk stool' legs anchored onto small concrete pads for minimal disturbance to the site.
