Land at Manor Road – Wantage

The requirement was to provide architectural services for the construction of a new dwellings on land to the west of Manor Road, Wantage, Oxfordshire.

The new house was treated as a series of ‘at-topped’ linear volumes splayed at slightly diferent angles to each other. The building volumes create a strong and elegant form which, with the use of diferent materials and appropriate expanses of glazing, float the upper floors above ground level creating a relationship within the newly proposed tree canopies.

Between the two wings, a lightweight/transparent glazed atrium is created which signifies the main vertical circulation zone. A single storey swimming lane structure is proposed to be adjacent to the larger two storey main volume.
