Bayford Mews

pH+ as Architects

Saw tooth & herringbone facades draw on surrounding context to create unique mews development

Bayford Mews is a thoughtfully designed development by pH+ Architects for NestEast in the Mare Street Conservation Area, comprising three mews style residential dwellings and a commercial unit, arranged around a shared mews and distributed over a part three-part four storey building plus basement. Each residential unit benefits from its own entrance at ground level and private amenity space at roof level, accessed via sliding box roof-lights.


The primary external material is a warm, textured brick that wraps around the building in alternating courses to delineate each floor level. Panels of herringbone coursing provide intrigue to the main street elevation, adding
to the unique character of this subtle and sympathetic response to the surrounding context.


The serrated eastern elevation, with a combination of fixed obscured glazing and clear openable windows, creates the opportunity to retain privacy from overlooking with respect to the dwellings opposite, whilst satisfying day lighting and ventilation requirements providing direct views towards the street. The result is a unique, rhythmic façade that creates an identity for the development and direct reference to the industrial language of the PEA in which it sits.


Andy Puncher, Director of pH+, said: “Bayford Mews continues our exploration of the development and densification of the city to maximise the potential of every site, regardless of size, to create high quality living and working environments through bespoke design responses. The part translucent part transparent saw tooth façade, draws on and contributes to the language of its context whilst both opening and shielding views into and out of the new homes and creative work space the scheme delivers.”


ZuziePoskitt, Director of NestEast, says: “When looking for areas to develop we choose areas we ourselves live in and love. When building properties, we plan and design them as we ourselves would want to live. We partner with the best-in-class specialists such as pH+ Architects to create superb properties such as Bayford Mews.”
