Semi Detached by Delvendahl Martin Architects
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.
