Water Lane

 

Location: Oxfordshire, UK   Status: Completed    Scale: 3-bedroom house; 130sqm

Constraints: Flood zone, Conservation area, TPOs

 

Nestled in the beautiful Oxfordshire landscape this elegant contemporary home is elevated above the flood level of an adjacent brook. The water is allowed to freely flow underneath the dwelling without causing damage to the property. During dry periods, the house appears to lightly float on its deck platform. Internally the use of pitched roofs allows the open plan living space to retain the intimacy of separate rooms. Double height spaces juxtapose lower ceiling heights to create a variety of characterful spaces.

Baca Architects is led by Richard Coutts.  We are specialised in architecture, urban planning and research related to living, working and recreation on water.
