See Your Design Come to Life with Timber Intent

Roger Brisley from Timber Intent has been involved in design and architecture his whole career. He spent many years in the drawing offices of architects, engineers and designers before going on to study at Hooke Park College in Dorset, a side project of John Makepeace’s Parnham House.

Roger set up Timber Intent to create eco-friendly timber and fabric tensile structures, their range of “Garden Party” and “Skipper” standards can be found on their website along with photos of the many unique, site-specific, installations for their wide range of clients including: The Eden Project, Cotswold Water Park, Wildfowl & Wetlands Trust, Hotel Du Vin, London and Bristol Zoos, Festival and Events organisers, holiday operators and more.

“I’ve always kept my hand in at architecture and planning, and have recently found myself getting a reputation for securing planning permission for various glamping businesses, including a difficult site near Teignbridge where foraging horseshoe bats were present,” says Roger. “I’m currently working on a great project in North Devon for just two timber lodges. It’s around a huge pond with decks over the water; access is a bit tricky but it’ll be a fabulous holiday spot and provide a decent income for my client.”

The Cocoon glamping tent (pictured) is an example of a joint design with a Dutch Architect to provide truly unique accommodation for a Sri Lankan holiday enterprise and though always keen to work with any operators who have ideas for something new and exciting he has now decided to create his own standard Timber Intent Glamping unit as well. He has promised to keep us informed here, we’ll be the first to show you the design!
