Herringbone Houses, London | Alison Brooks Architects

Uniquely sited in a backlands plot, overlooking a Wandsworth bowling green, this scheme consists of two 400sqm 'urban woodland' houses for developer Lyford Investments. 
These houses are a rare example of a developer aiming to match the craftmanship of neighbouring Victorian villas within a contemporary architectural language. The houses were conceived from the principle of manipulating two continuous planes of timber and graphite render, that extend from exterior to interior, forming walls, floors, external decking and fences.
