The Herringbone House - New Build

What our clients say;
“After an initial meeting with Jason and Michelle, it was evident that T-Space were the right partner for us on our new house build project. From the very start it was clear that

T-Space were a very experienced architectural practice with a solid multi-disciplinary team, a tried and tested approach and a detailed understanding of the local planning requirements.

Our brief was to always design a house which was contemporary whilst respecting the neighbouring houses and conservation area, and that is exactly what we have achieved through a very collaborative working relationship with the team and Amr as our principal designer. The quality of the deliverables, from the concept design to the detailed construction drawings were highly impressive. Our builder also cited the construction drawings as being the most comprehensive to follow which is why the house just looks like the drawings/3D rendering produced by T-Space.

We are absolutely delighted with our new house and continue to receive very positive comments from family, friends, neighbours, and general passers-by. We would highly recommend T-Space to anyone requiring architectural services and they would be our first choice for any future projects.”

This new build family home gives the site a new lease of life, replacing an existing 70’s house, incongruous with its surroundings. The brief for the proposal was to present a contemporary twist to the local vernacular, using traditional forms and materials in a playful way – a remix of sorts.

The Herringbone House marks the beginning of this street, forming part of a key view within the Conservation Area. It was therefore important that the resultant architecture struck a balance between making an architectural statement, whilst still respecting the wishes of the local planning and conservation officers.

The material palette is simple yet expressive; the red brick and white render have been paired together so as to strengthen and accentuate the building’s elegant geometry.

The standout feature is the herringbone pattern brick work to the protruding bay, extending from the ground floor level all the way to the roof. The soldier courses in darker brick, combined with the cast stone sills and slim frame aluminum windows contribute further to the contemporary aesthetic, without straying too far from the established architectural rhythm of the street.

This spacious family home comes with a dedicated home office and a yoga/fitness studio, turning this modest sized building into a functional live/work/play unit - a valuable commodity in a post-pandemic Britain.
