Oaktree Development

This development of four large houses up in the north of England was built by Oaktree Developments. They were keen for the homes to feel high-end and for every house to have it’s own unique feel.

The exterior detail

All the houses follow a U shaped floorplan, with the garage on one side and the living area on the other, with the front entrance in the middle. As you can see from the images, using a turret style for one and a large atrium style entrance for another, among other designs, the designer has created individuality and interest. By using iroko as the hardwood and different configurations of the same door design, continuity is established. The door design Parma is simple and contemporary. The pivot style adds to the wow factor.

The interior details

Oaktree wanted to create the feeling of grandeur without using double doors, which is often the traditional choice for large houses like these. To create a more contemporary feel Pivot doors were chosen with sidelights and boarded panels, which look amazing internally too adding warmth with the deep reddish brown look of iroko. Using etched glass on one of the entrances softens the light and provides privacy. The internal view of the doorway with the boarded panel works well and, because the door isn't central as you might expect, this adds interest.
