Brixton, UK. 2008

A joint development between a private developers and a housing association, the scheme comprises 10 dwellings for sale, 7 as maisonettes and 3 as apartments, above a purpose built medical centre.

All dwellings have very generous balconies facing south onto the quiet, tree-lined street. Each maisonette has a courtyard on the north that receives east and west sunlight, and in a neighbourly way provides the entrance from a communal pathway and a place for outside dining and children to play.


Facades are of brick that was lightly overpainted with black mineral paint so as to resemble the weathered brickwork of the neighbouring buildings.


This project was carried by Tony Fretton Architects.
