“The warm grey brick complements the neighbourhood’s buff London stock brick, without trying to mimic the naturally aged material.”

This house is a crafted and ingenious solution to creating a modern infill dwelling with reference to the Victorian context, on a site with an existing post home house, but encasing the existing dwelling rather than demolishing it. It is a lesson in sustainability as well as in proportion and form. The simple choice of brick, inside and out, manages to stand out as well as blend in, with elegance and style.
