Scenic Country Home Made of Flat-Packed Panels

Oxford House exterior facade

The house, which is located near Oxford, is clad in cedar. Composite timber and aluminum windows maintain the house’s connection with the countryside, as does the generous patio that wraps around two of its sides. 

In the countryside near Oxford, England, Adrian James Architects designed a house that achieves architectural distinction on a tight budget. Built using flat-packed, insulated panels, the home cantilevers over a concrete wall, creating a captivating entrance. Sizeable windows offer a connection with the green expanses outdoors. On the inside, meanwhile, the home allows for open-plan living and, thanks to neat touches like folded steel stairs, provides plenty of architectural intrigue. The result is a house that prides itself on cleverness, not cost.
