DORA CARR CLOSE
The project is the second phase of the Dora Carr Close development and provides 19 terrace houses of two and three storey with a varied roof profile reflecting the historical skyline of Oxford and the change in unit type. This sits opposite the Mansion Block and new Community Centre that provide a focus of the area.
Forming part of a wider three site development in Oxford, the scheme provides over 100 new social and private for sale houses and flats, along with two Community Centres and retail provision for the charity Emmaus, which provides accommodation for people at risk of homelessness.
RUFFARCHITECTS are delivering as executive architects the Allford Hall Monaghan Morris designed scheme for Phase Two of Dora Carr Close, Oxford. Designed for Kevin McCloud’s development company HAB and housing association GreenSquare Group, the project looks to bring good quality design and clear sustainable targets to the masses through social housing, whilst supporting and enhancing the existing community with the new community facilities which include a sports centre and local business units, café and social rooms.
