Project Description

Grade II Oxfordshire Manor House

This 16th century Grade II listed manor house, untouched for almost seventy years, required complete renovation of the fabric and services and an extension to create a contemporary family space for living and entertaining.

We were appointed to undertake the architecture, interior design and construction management for this project, to bring the house into the 21st century with all the amenities of modern-day life whilst retaining much of its beautiful history.

Original features discovered during the works were renovated but left exposed to create a link with the past: stone flooring was calibrated and re-laid over underfloor heating, an exterior Cotswold stone wall which now forms a dramatic double height feature in the new  kitchen was repointed and a well discovered under the Boot Room floor protected with glass and lit from below.

Use of mid to dark greys throughout the house gives a consistent feels and bespoke joinery was designed to work with the age-old crooked walls. The overall feel is that of cocooning spaces, with plenty of texture and generous comfort.
