Located within the UK’s largest Self and Custom Build site at Graven Hill, Bicester. Greenspace Architects were appointed to bring our innovative and carefully crafted approach to the design of a modern family home.
The brief called for a three bedroom family home, with plenty of light and great links to the garden. Working within the strict plot constraints of a rectangular sloping site with neighbours on three sides, and design code set out as part of the overall masterplan, we developed a design that sees a modern approach to the open plan arrangement of kitchen-dining-living – with a stepped floor plan that allows the house to flow into the garden effortlessly.
The house was conceived as two interlocking forms, clad in western red cedar boarding on the walls and roof, contrasted with vertical standing seam zinc. A cantilevered balcony provides an outdoor space at first floor level from the master bedroom, while the corner sliding doors and large picture window provides access and views of the garden to the rear.
As with all our projects, we worked closely with our clients – starting with a conversation and a blank piece of paper, we designed a contemporary home that will suit the way our clients wish to live.
