An ambitious new-build project on a vacant corner plot in the heart of Oxford. The challenge here is to blend the old with the new and create a modern, innovative property that is still in keeping with the existing streetscape. The original stone boundary walls will be reinstated leaving only the zinc-clad first floor visible from the street, giving the appearance of a ‘floating’ structure. Featuring a large basement and courtyard garden, the four-bed dwelling is set to achieve Level 4 in the Code for Sustainable Homes.
