We were appointed to design a new family home in a prominent position within a picturesque village outside Oxford. In order to secure planning permission in this sensitive location, a more traditional approach was adopted to the front of the house with a more contemporary language to the rear.

The expansive open-plan Kitchen, Family and Dining space opens out onto a secluded courtyard through a large sliding screen. This impressive double-height space is broken up with the introduction of a mezzanine study which helps to reduce the scale whilst providing a direct link between ground and first floors.
