York Road

107 York Road is a speculative development in suburban Oxford that includes a coupling of twin houses on a triangular site. Similar but not the same, the two are compact 4 bedroom houses which are symmetrical at a large scale but asymmetrical in detail and materials. The orientation of each house responds to its setting, the street and the site in order to maximise outlook and best use the available space.

As partners, the houses are sited relative to each other so as to provide opportunities for outlook without overlooking each other or towards adjacent properties. The orientation also emphasises the pairing as they turn towards and embrace each other.
