The principal objective of the brief was to design five substantial executive properties, all with suitable amenity and garaging on a linear site set back from Oxford Road out of the hamlet of Frilford Heath. The dwellings are designed with wide frontages, tree dominated landscaping and set back from the road so as to reflect the characteristics of the area, whilst also minimising overlooking between the plots.
The design creates a collection of dwellings that are comfortably familiar while incorporating individual features that retain a distinct architectural style. The buildings, although differing in form, are designed so that they clearly belong as a collection of buildings. Overall the classical features of the proposed scheme reflect a high-quality design approach that is fitting for the semi-rural area of Frilford Heath and its wider context.
