These London Brownstone houses are a pair of beautifully crafted new 5 bedroom houses set within an Edwardian terrace in North Dulwich, London. The houses have a timber-framed construction, with a stone frontage facing onto the street. The front elevation is a contemporary reworking of the Edwardian street typology. The front elevation has terracotta sandstone laid in ashlar courses, with white sandstone lintols, columns, and cills aligning with the stucco bands on the neighbouring houses either side.
The house has a three-storey rear outrigger, clad in tongue and groove larch facing onto the garden. Sliding folding doors seamlessly connect the kitchen with a small courtyard. The floor plans are mirrored, and each house has an internal floor area of 200 sq metres. The houses have well crafted internal joinery, including integrated sliding shutters on the front bay windows. The ground floor is polished concrete, and the rest of the house has bamboo tongue and groove boarding.
London Brownstones are a contemporary answer to the ubiquitous and well-loved London terraced house. Durable beautiful materials, ingenious joinery, light and curves in every dimensions are all used in a truly inventive way, to create a relevant workable solution, to building alongside existing residential building stock in the 21st century.
