Sector - Residential

Company - MEB Design
The three Guest Cottages at SLG Convent are a series of beautiful timber cabins utilising CLT structural technology as well as prefabricated composite en-suite bathroom pods. Designed to “Passivhaus Principles” with super insulation and airtightness, the CLT structure has been an integral part of this approach. Set in the extensive grounds of the historic Convent, which itself is undergoing a major renovation, the Guest Cottages are designed to create a place of peace and tranquillity in high quality, self-contained accommodation. All the design and aesthetic considerations of these simple buildings have been to create beautiful simplicity in keeping with this fantastic setting in East Oxford. Offsite construction methods have helped to achieve this goal.
