Oxfordshire Manor House

Mailen Design as Architects

Contemporary restoration of a Grade II Listed Manor House in Oxfordshire


Originally dating back to 1672 the oak timber frame property had suffered from years of poorly chosen modifications and the use of inappropriate materials. The modernisation stripped the house back to the structural core, before sensitively repairing the timber frame and masonry. Natural materials were used to repair the lime mortar and to provide insulation through eco-friendly breathable wood fibre panels before re-introducing natural lime render to the exterior.


The interior design approach is intentionally modern, but with a subtlety that allows the historic natural materials which had previously been hidden to come to the forefront.
