This month we received planning for a refurbishment and radical addition to a 1870 townhouse in the heart of an Oxford conservation area.
Inspired by the Gothic revival style of the existing townhouse, the addition is an exploration of ornament expressed using a quatrefoil tectonic tile. These tiles configure the façade with an intelligent play of motif; communicating built meaning through historical continuity.
In other news our Copper House was featured as an ‘inspirational piece of architecture’ for the Channel 4 TV series ‘Ugly House to Lovely House’.
Kristian + Kay Hyde presented a lecture on the studio’s work at the Centre of Alternative Technology, located in the mountains near Machynlleth in North Wales.
