New House, Blewbury
Inspiration were asked to design a new contemporary style home in the extensive grounds of the clients’ existing house in this Oxfordshire village
The whole of the rear of the house is created from a large sweeping curved wall, glazed floor to ceiling and with continuous curved balconies. This allows a spectacular panorama of the beautiful surrounding Oxfordshire hills from every part of the inside of the house. The clients’ brief included a separate wing with private spa facilities including a large swim-spa. This connects to the main terrace and the garden with fully opening glass walls. The flat roof above the spa suite is utilised to create a large timber deck area sun terrace area leading directly from the master bedroom. The materials used on the elevations are green zinc, white render and a polymer material that is low maintenance and indistinguishable from genuine weathered timber sleepers.
