Osie House, Cambridge, UK

Restoration working hand in hand with the new proposed submerged structural gem with the landscape.

Introduction

On the outskirts of Balsham, Osie House is a multigenerational home located in the countryside. The Osie House is a paragraph 80 home, meaning its architecture and sustainability must exceed current architectural standards in the UK in terms of quality and innovation.

Approach

The integration of architecture into the landscape has been a central feature in our approach.. As a result of investigating the rich history of the Osier Willow cottage industry, the proposal aims to develop a keen sense of place for a structure¬† that integrates the landscape with the architecture through time. With this proposal, Balsham’s architecture and rich history will gain a new and exciting feature as well as the restoration of an area of natural beauty.¬†

For a scheme which pushes the boundaries of architecture in the region, it has been important to engage with the local community and develop simultaneously with the culture of the area.
