Eye-Catching Oxford House Reconstruction by Delvendahl Martin Architects


Talented creatives at the Delvendahl Martin Architects have created an eye-catching reconstruction of an Oxford House.

The project involved the conversion of two semi-detached houses in central Oxford into one family home. Two existing Victorian houses are joined together by introducing a new staircase at the centre of the plan and perpendicular to the party wall. The existing symmetrical arrangement gets thus rotated to achieve a continuous flow of spaces throughout each floor. The change of level from the entrance to the back garden is negotiated by introducing a second staircase and a new loggia accessible from the kitchen and main living room of the house. Planning permission was granted in September 2013 and the project completed in July 2015. – from Delvendahl Martin Architects
