Mr Bean’s new house…

Despite recommendations from virtually everyone to refuse it, I read yesterday that the Oxford Planning Dept. had finally approved Rowan Atkinson’s application to build a new house on a 25 Hectare plot near Ipsden.

Mr Atkinson is obviously a man of taste, as he has chosen Richard Meier as his architect, and although it’s difficult to see from the single image I found on the web, the new house looks very much like it’s business as usual for the White Knight: double height spaces, clever geometries, large areas of glass and his wonderful knack of placing elegant white buildings within pristine landscapes that look as if they have always and should have always been there.

Congratulations to the Oxford Planning Dept. I honestly believe that they got this one right.

This may well be the first “proper building in the UK by Mr. Meier…
