Old School House Oxfordshire

Location Oxfordshire

Project Type Extension

Project Status In Progress

The principle aim for the Old School House was to demolish an old poor quality extension to its rear and replace it with a low energy addition which embraces the use of high quality materials and makes as little impact on the existing building as possible. The new design greatly improves the energy efficiency of the whole house and the ‘fabric first’ approach to designing the extension ensures much improved thermal properties and good levels of airtightness. Through the use of timber, slate and lead, the extension seeks to reference local vernacular timber outbuildings and in doing so differentiate itself from the main house.
