Satish Jassal completes 51m² house in Haringey

  • Comment

Satish Jassal Architects has completed this small brick house in Haringey, North London

Built on the site of a derelict garage, the 51m² two-storey house sits at the end of a terrace of 19th century town houses.

According to the architect, the £170,000 building takes its inspiration from the houses around it, ‘with vertical windows, and horizontal lines created by the window sills, gutter lines, and recessed entrances’.

Haringey Brick House

Planning permission was gained for the ‘Haringey Brick House’ on the plot measuring 3.6m x 11m, with restrictions on windows to the rear of the building.

Haringey Brick House

The use of different brick bonding, both internally and externally defines the building form and the internal spaces. Oak windows, panels and anodised aluminium rails are inserted between the horizontal staggered, vertical staggered and stack bonded brickwork.

Internally the oak becomes the bespoke fixed furniture. The bench in the front garden doubles up as a cycle store.

The project is the first newbuild house for the practice, who worked very closely with the contractor to produce a full construction package when tendering.
