Willow House

Brandesburton, East Riding of Yorkshire

Contextual Family Home


A new addition to the heritage main street of Brandesburton, a rural East Yorkshire village, this project replaced a derelict shop & provides a clear example of how we aim to maintain and enrich the existing streets of our villages. There is never an excuse for a home to turn its back on the street.

The historic village core required a sensitive approach for this home, mediating between a number of closely built up neighbours and a busy street frontage with few sides available for windows and access.

The dwelling was faced in hand thrown locally sourced red brick blend with brick tined mortar yielding a warmly toned external skin.

We are strong believers in the role homes can play as eyes on the street, keeping areas safe for the children and adults of our towns and villages. Making regular windows at street level keeps the home owners and the pedestrian safer.
