No.1 Alhambra Lane is a small domestic property  located between Iffley and Cowley road, Oxford. After being granted a slice of additional land from the development of an adjoining property the owners sought to extend the property with a two story extension and approach Jessop and Cook. Located with in a conservation area but unlisted the property occupies a tight site overlooked form surrounding properties but completely hidden from the general public. The property is believed to have stared out as a hay loft before being converted to stabling and a coach house before being converted into a house around 1930.

The final scheme put forward for planning is a modern interpretation of the local vernacular, it proposes the demolition of the existing lean- to and erection of a new two storey extension to the South-West of the property. The proposals are for the creation of an additional bedroom, an open plan kitchen and dining room and rationalisation of the internal arrangement to which includes a first floor bathroom and a ground floor wet-room to replace the existing bathroom. In addition to the other internal alterations the design includes the lowering of the internal floor level to create additional head room and usable space on the first floor. The scheme addresses the issue the of cramped living conditions whilst creating an environment suitable for future use as a small family home.

The Scheme was given planning permission at the beginning of 2013.
