The Meadows, Oswestry

Project Type: 
Contemporary New Build


Ke-design was approached to see if they were interested in meeting a gentleman to design a house for them. So we wre surprised on meeting the 83 yr old gentlemen, and more surprised when they said they wanted something modern- but not too modern “I still want it to look like a house”.

The elevated sloping site had great south facing views of a cricket pitch, fields and local monument. The design addressed the diagonal slope with a split level floor plan. The entrance level & hallway linked the 2 split elements, going down to the bedrooms and up to open plan living space and master bedroom. The raised living space and master bedroom make most of the views with glazed gables and balconies. This ‘grand design’ is complete with a mix of coloured render, timber and powder coated cladding.
