PAD studio Awarded: New Forest, Agricultural Designer of the Year 2014

PAD studio and Warborne Farm are delighted to have been recognised by the CLA & New Forest National Park Authority and have been awarded the: Agricultural Building Design Award 2014.

Pad Studio were presented with this award at the New Forest Show on Wednesday for the Warborne, Farm Stay Project' and for work towards the enhancement and reuse of a local agricultural building.

The project was judged against the following criteria:

  • Sits well within its surroundings.
  • Suitable composition in relation to existing buildings in the area.
  • Use of sympathetic building materials to allow the building to blend in and reflect local building styles.
  • Use of measures to support and enhance biodiversity (i.e. associated tree and hedge planting, bird and bat boxes etc).

Warborne Farm was granted Planning permission by the New Forest National Park Authority under delegated powers in May 2010 with phase 1 being completed in June 2012. Phase 2 is due to start in October 2014 which will include another 3 farm stay units each with their own individual and quirky character.

You can stay at the farm throughout the year. For more details & bookings visit
