Modern House on Banbury Road
Conceived as a home for a family of four, the design schema takes advantage of the site’s relationship with Windemere Park directly across Banbury Road. The open, main living space perches above a grounded lower level containing a workshop, garage, one bedroom apartment, and other support spaces. From the second level, a wall of glass offers expansive views of the park’s trees, while more private spaces such as the children’s rooms, den, and pool are located towards the back. The airy upper level is reserved for the master suite along with multiple roof decks and gardens. A well-proportioned sloped roof brings in natural light through clerestories, offers optimized geometry for fixed solar arrays, and shades outdoor spaces.
