C. F. Møller Architects has submitted planning for two housing schemes in Waddesdon, Buckinghamshire for the Rothschild Foundation
The two interlinked sites will feature 65 houses and 10 flats arranged around shared coppiced woodland and meadows.
The materials have been chosen to reflect the local vernacular with the homes clad in clay tiles and timber.
The architect’s view
The village of Waddesdon is a community with strong roots and a dynamic history, with connections to the Rothschild family dating back to the 19th century. The focal point of the village is Waddesdon Manor, a stately home built in the style of a French châteaux, built by the Rothschild’s in 1874. Lord Rothschild and the Rothschild Foundation have been patrons of contemporary art and architecture for many years, with a series of innovative commissions and projects including the award winning Rothschild Archive complex at Windmill Hill.
At the forefront of considerations has been the aim to make a delightful place for future residents and neighbours. All homes regardless of tenure or size have far reaching views and generously proportioned double aspect rooms with good daylight that open up to a variety of gardens.
