Hernes Crescent

This architect designed development is located in Summertown, North Oxford and, following an appeal hearing, we achieved planning permission to develop the previously under-utilised yet prominent plot into nine units, featuring a mix of three and four storey townhouses with private rear amenity spaces, and on-site parking facilities.

The project aim was to create a dynamic yet sympathetic contemporary development, which is respectful to both the scale and size of the nearby buildings. Visually, the scheme aims to draw comparisons with the forms of traditional terrace dwellings found in the North-Oxford area but introducing a contemporary architectural language and detailing in order to create the large open-plan modern living spaces. The palette of high quality materials takes influence from the local vernacular, ensuring that the residential development will contribute to, and enhance, its surrounding context.
