A renovated Victorian House for the parents sharing a rear garden with a new Mews house for one of the daughters. The now grown-up family recently moved out of their long-term family home and wanted these new homes to maintain some sense of continuity with their former lives. 2 Intertwined themes run through both homes, those of memory and tectonic expression. Their social rituals are given tangible form within the design. Typical domestic objects are distorted in material and scale to form a psychological landscape specific to the occupants. Construction is expressed directly as the finished product imbuing these two new homes with a powerful, domestic character. The Mews house’s facade take it's key from the Flemish-bond brickwork walls of the Victorian House, seeking a kind of constructional context with its older brother. The unique bonds are the result of ‘separating’ the Flemish bond into 2 layers, and conceptually situating the home in the space between these 2 layers.
