PROJECT: Pulross Road – New build two bedroom house

“A tiny site in Brixton was created 20 years ago by the messy subdivision of the original dwelling. It faced a courtyard bounded on one side by a three-storey flank wall, a garden boundary and a gated entrance. The scheme aimed to dissolve the division between inside and outside space by creating a courtyard ‘room’. The elements within the ‘room’ reinforce this domestic analogy – abstracted cupboards, dresser, lighting etc and a uniform concrete surface to the floor. A split-level roof deck/lantern has been inserted above the spare bedroom and stairwell which serves as a home-working area. The fully glazed box rises from surface level and reveals open views of London.”
