This project is located on one of the main arterial routes into Oxford City. The brief called for the redevelopment of the existing Victorian structure to create a retail unit at ground floor level and 3 new residential units above.
The aim of the proposal was to create a well-mannered and complementary architectural solution that echoes the existing Victorian elements of the building. The scheme responds to the scale and materiality of the adjacent terraces, with openings, materials and details to the street frontages designed to reflect the language of the neighbouring buildings. However, the openings are larger and more modern in detail, with balconies to the first floor accommodation.
