We've just submitted an application to build six new homes on Cumnor Hill in Oxford. Designed by John Pardey Architects, it's in a cracking location just ten minutes from Oxford’s city centre. The proposals bring the same values of high quality architecture and public realm, sustainability and community which are common to all HAB schemes, but weaves them into the suburbs of the city.
HAB's in-house Landscape Architect Catherine Haigh, in association with Robert Bray Associates, conceived a defined, functioning landscape with water gardens, SUDS and in which logs for each property’s wood burning stove will be integrated with natural planting to form boundaries in place of conventional fences.
Under our custom build model, purchasers will be able to work with us to customise the internal arrangement and features to suit their family, needs and tastes; options will include winter garden rooms, fully-equipped outdoor kitchens, differing layouts and a range of fixtures and fittings. The homes can either be in a conventional arrangement with living space on the ground floor, or people may choose ‘upside-down’ living, with daytime living space positioned on the first floor to take advantage of the fantastic views that the scheme will provide. If we're successful in securing detailed planning approval, work will begin on site at Cumnor Hill early in 2015.
Drop us your details and we'll keep in touch
