Oxford Road

ECE Architecture has obtained planning consent for a mixed-use development which will provide much-needed housing in the Oxford Road area of Reading.

The proposals for the existing brownfield site included 26 apartments and ground floor commercial space over 4 to 6 floors, with private amenity space for each resident.

ECE’s design team analysed the surrounding historic architecture which inspired the use of mixed stock red brick with feature glazed and textured brick panels.

The single colour of brick is punctuated by inset balconies, while brick piers and anthracite framed glazing have been implemented into the design to define the ground floor and mark the entrance to the commercial units.
