Completion of Major Extensions and Refurbishment to Family Home, North Oxford

Completion of Major Extensions and Refurbishment to Family Home, North Oxford

We’re really proud to have been involved with this rewarding project for ground floor extensions, alterations and complete refurbishment of this fabulous family home in North Oxford.

The property had previously been used as a guest house, with the layout and circulation being somewhat ‘ad hoc’. PPA Architecture in conjunction with Camilla Leech at Element Studios (Interior Designers) rearranged the space to provide a triple height galleried entrance hall, utility/boot rooms and snug, with large kitchen diner and library/living room at the rear.

The main technical challenge with the re-modelling was the structural support of the upper floors whilst removing almost all of the ground floor. The contractor, Renelec, made a fantastic job of this and alongside Camilla’s beautiful interiors have created a contemporary family space which opens up to the re-landscaped garden.

Extensions, Large Family Home, North Oxford

Extensions, Large Family Home, North Oxford

This project for a private client was a wholesale redevelopment of the property, with two storey and single storey extension to the rear and side, and a new roof to provide spacious loft accommodation with large kitchen dining room to the rear. The original house had a hipped roof which constrained the available space. The result is a very sharp, smart, open and airy property within easy walking distance of the sought-after area of Summertown in Oxford. Well done to all who worked on this project!

The property is currently for sale and being marketed through Knight Frank in Oxford

New Conversion and Extension in Headington, Oxford

New Conversion and Extension in Headington, Oxford

This two storey extension and redevelopment of a family home in Headington added a large additional vaulted rear bedroom and new dining/living area. The original rear kitchen was cramped and the design challenge was to integrate the fairly large change in levels at the rear. PPA Architecture did this by stepping the living space down creating a light and airy space.

This redevelopment (and interior design) by Spiering and Co has really opened up a previously dark kitchen, and added a very spacious loft. Lovely work by them on dressing the interiors and specifying the kitchen. The feeling of light and space as compared to the original room is palpable.
