The Oaks is a private residence found in London, England.
Developed by SOUP Architects Ltd, it was originally built in 1610, turned into 2 separate residences in 1970s, and then renovated in 2012 to its current condition.
The Oaks by SOUP Architects Ltd:
“Built in 1610 as the secure block to Ham House, the Grade II listed creating, which forms one wing of Ham House Stables, was converted into 2 residential units during the 1970s.
In the late 1990s Foster + Partners refurbished one unit and installed a modern day steel and glass construction wrapped around the present oak frame to produce a split degree property in excess of 3 floors.
The project extends this refurbishment to provide extra living locations and a reconfigured bedroom arrangement that unifies the 2 units as a single coherent residence. The master bedroom has been brought down to the mezzanine degree to generate a personal suite and the children’s bedrooms have been reconfigured on the upper roof level.
The refurbishment has retained the existing inner oak framework, restored the property’s landmark chimney connected to the southern elevation and re-instated a lot of of the buildings misplaced characteristics, such as the authentic blacksmiths fire.
Internally a mezzanine degree has been eliminated to develop a double height living space centered around the new open fire.
A entirely integrated heating, lighting, audio and visual program has been put in that enables full handle from any ne2rked telephone/laptop in residence or remotely from anywhere globally.”1st Degree
