Entrances and Threshold: Image showing close-up 3-dimensional composition of the entrance to our 20-home scheme for @brickbybrickldn . The semi-circular balconies compliment the arched entrances and are staggered in plan on the east-facing elevation to allow a better coverage of south-facing aspect and sunlight to the balconies at the lower level. #councilhomes #affordablehomes #conviviality #hayhurstandco #newhomes #brickbybrick #londonarchitecture #archedwindows #curvedbalcony #socialhousing #brickbybrick #brickbuilding #brick

Entrances and Thresholds: Extracts of elevations showing the two approaches to our 20-home scheme for @brickbybrickldn . The arched windows to the stairwell are a nod to some of London’s pioneering turn-of-the century social housing that saw generous well-lit, airy and convivial shared circulation spaces. The brick arch to the entrance canopy at ground floor denotes the point of entry and visually balances the blocks north-facing flank wall. #councilhomes #affordablehomes #conviviality #hayhurstandco #newhomes #brickbybrick #londonarchitecture #archedwindows #curvedbalcony #socialhousing #brickbybrick #brickbuildings #brick

In planning: Our proposal for 20 affordable homes on a garage site in Thornton Heath for @brickbybrickldn has been submitted for planning. The new 4-storey building at Atlanta Court will form the third side and an active front to an existing shared space. Drawing reference from the English tradition of early, turn-of-the-century social housing, the entrance and circulation areas are embellished with large, elongated arched openings of the common stair to the new block. The semi-circular motif is continued through to the projecting curved balconies to the upper-floor homes that are staggered in plan to reduce the impact of shadow from upper balconies. #councilhomes #affordablehomes #conviviality #hayhurstandco #newhomes #brickbybrick #londonarchitecture #archedwindows #curvedbalcony

A breath of fresh air for the weekend: Grain House is a remodelled and extended Victorian home in the de Beauvoir Conservation Area in Hackney, north London. Completed last year, the house connects original and new living spaces via a 2-storey sunken courtyard that creates a visual link from the entrance, through to new family spaces and on to the garden. The project will be published on our website next week! Photo: @kilianosullivan #hayhurstandco #grainhouse #hackney #houseextension #londonarchitecture #displayart

New commission: a room with a view. We have just been appointed by a photographer to refurbish a 3-storey, Grade II listed house in Hampstead for her and her family. Located close to the Heath, the property includes an outbuilding at the rear of the garden that will be redeveloped to form a new studio. #newcommission #houseextension #hayhurstandco
