Pioneering classical house in Oxfordshire
A pioneering classical house that incorporates unique developments of the classical tradition and is zero-carbon rated, replaces the modernist scheme which was given permission in 2004 under the old country house policy known as "Gummer's Law", (PPG7). It has an original interpretation of the classical Tuscan Order, a new interpretation of traditional stone detailing, distinctive window details, uses high performance glazing and brings glass balustrading into the traditional vocabulary. The local planning committee felt this was a design of sufficiently high quality to replace the original design, and more sympathetic to the area.
