Scenic Country Home Made of Flat-Packed Panels


A slightly cantilevered home in England connects with nature.

In the countryside near Oxford, England, Adrian James Architects designed a house that achieves architectural distinction using prefabricated elements. Built out of 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.

The house, which is located near Oxford, is clad in cedar.
On the patio, occupants can take in the views from the oak chairs and table.
