Architects in Oxford: A review of some of our most beautiful 2018 projects
27 Nov '18
As the year draws to a close (dare we mention Christmas?) we always enjoy taking a moment to look back at some of our most memorable projects from the last twelve months. Working as architects in Oxford we are blessed to be surrounded by both stunning architecture and dramatic landscapes, providing the perfect backdrop for our designs and continued inspiration. Join us in revisiting some of our most beautiful 2018 projects.
Unique North Oxfordshire Architectural Build
Completed in early 2018, this unique Oxfordshire home is a stunning example of modern architecture in a traditional style. The clients approached us wanting to design a large, new build, detached house which would sit well alongside the village streetscape, whilst having all the modern conveniences required in a family home. The outcome is everything we and they hoped for. Natural materials create the understated exterior required, whilst the latest technology equips the house with eco-friendly and economic modern living. Take a look at the images here.
Grade II listed remodel and extension
Whilst planning was approved for the design last year, 2018 has seen this project come on in leaps and bounds. The owners of the beautiful Grade II listed home in Northamptonshire wanted to remodel the interior so that it flowed better for modern day living. Alongside the remodel, the clients hoped to install a modern extension, housing a stunning lap pool and gym under a dramatic skylight. The reconfiguration of the project is now largely completed, as is the superstructure of the pool room, and the skylight has just been installed. See the design images here.
New home in central Oxford
This beautiful architecturally designed new residence in central Oxford is now really taking shape. The clients approached us with the hope of demolishing the existing bungalow and replacing it with a modern four-bed home. Planning was gained and this year the build went ahead, with the external structure now in the latter stages of development. High-quality materials are to be used on the exterior to create a stunning, eye-catching design. Read more about the project here.
Remodelled family home in Bloxham
Work has begun on this home in Bloxham this year and while we are still in the earlier stages of development we cannot wait to show you more as the project unfolds. The clients asked our architects in Oxford to create a unique home that will stand the test of time. By remodelling the existing property and adding an extension with sedum roof we are fulfilling the client brief. The finished home will have a modern kitchen extension, garden studio and two bay garage. Read more about this project here.
Architectural overhaul in Wiltshire
Having started on the project this summer, this architecturally designed overhaul in Wiltshire is very much immersed in the building stage, but progress is made daily and now the steel is installed, a glimpse of the finished shape can be seen. Starting life as a cosy bungalow, the clients came to us in the hope that it could be turned into a spacious family home which could house their growing family. Our architects did not disappoint, and we look forward to seeing the modern lines and materials on show as it approaches completion next year. Read more about the project here.
Modern games room
We were thrilled to gain planning permission this year for an architecturally designed games room in the curtilage of a Grade II listed church. The owners of The Old Rectory felt their home was somewhat removed from the beautiful garden and they wanted a space where they could enjoy its full glory all year round. The modern games room extension will do just that whilst also providing a valuable social space. Modern interventions will slice through more traditional materials to create a truly beautiful piece of architecture. Read all about the project here.
New build in Middle Aston
Last but by no means least on our list is the new home in Middle Aston designed by our architects in Oxford. This project has kept us busy this year and we are delighted to say it is now nearing completion. Replacing a dilapidated bungalow, the home is impressive whilst not being domineering in the peaceful village setting. Made from traditional materials, the home provides both the required social space and seven bedrooms requested by the client. More photos will be shared shortly but you can read all about this project here.
