We were appointed to design a contemporary replacement dwelling within the South Oxfordshire village of Sutton Courtenay. The practice designed this bespoke property to realise the resale potential of the site and to create a dream home for a growing family. The building utilises the width of the plot to maximise the number of south facing windows offering views of the lake and the countryside beyond. Bathed in natural light, the internal living spaces have been designed for ‘open plan’ contemporary living which is ideal for modern family life.

The principal façades have been designed to present simple, sharp modernist elegance. The exterior finish is white render, combined with elegant aluminium windows and doors which, when open, seamlessly blend the house and the garden.
