Packhorse Lane contemporary dwellings

Packhorse Lane

development of 4 dwellings | Marcham, Oxfordshire

Our client purchased this site with the benefit of an Outline Planning consent for 3 dwellings to the rear of an existing Victorian villa.

We were initially tasked with working up the outline proposal into a full planning scheme.  At the rear of the site was an unmanaged woodland; looking at the previous tree survey it was clear that with some careful management and clearance of this woodland it would be possible to release this land for a further dwelling.

The root protection areas of the retained specimen trees gave us just enough room to accommodate a four bedroom dwelling.  The plan form was very much derived from the space available within the tree canopies and has resulted in a very contemporary dwelling.

The contemporary nature of the design and material usage follows back through to the three dwellings towards the front of the site.  This results in a scheme that reflects the semi-rural nature of the site without being alien to the architectural styles of the village.
