ENTRAL OXFORD TOWN HOUSE, EXTENSION & REFURBISHMENT APPROACHES COMPLETION.
Situated in the Oxford Conservation Area, this four story, prime-residential property is nearing the end of an extensive architectural refurbishment and extension. The clients approached us requesting a more contemporary, family friendly living space, increasing the current bedroom sizes and providing improved bathroom facilities . The architectural brief asked for a larger, modern kitchen/diner space that would integrate with the garden, whilst maintaining the visual links to the front of the property.
We proposed to develop a three story extension, utilising the side and rear space, whilst maintaining access. The extension, being largely hidden from the street, does not impact upon the front elevation and maintains the current streetscape.
The entrance hall is now opened up through the extensive use of glass, providing views as well as easy access to the garden. The side extension connects to this and re-configures the ground floor producing a more natural flow to the property. To the back of the house we have replaced the existing conservatory with the rear extension. This enables the kitchen to maintain a central position within the building, with bi folding doors to the end, supplying year round enjoyment of the outdoor space.
The property extends outwards over an additional two floors giving ample bedroom and bathroom accommodation whilst remaining contextually in keeping with the existing home. The extension itself is a bespoke contemporary addition, which utilises glass and natural materials, such as larch cladding, helping to break up the dominating brickwork present on the rear elevation whilst defining the new from the old.
