Wienerberger bricks transform award-winning housing development in London

  • 12 Jul 2017

Project: Hindman’s Yard in East Dulwich, London

Hindman’s Yard is a former industrial yard used by artists and craftsmen that was been transformed into a development of four newly built family homes. The material palette for the redeveloped yard was carefully considered by architects, Foster Lomas.

The project was the BDA Winner 2016 of Best Small Housing Development as it demonstrated the potential to transform a derelict space into a contextually driven, high-quality example of sustainable architecture for residential use.

Wienerberger bricks

New brick cladding by Wienerberger was chosen to contrast with the existing untouched perimeter walls and the surrounding urban dwellings of industrial red and yellow London brick stock houses with rough garden walls.

Two variations of Wienerberger’s Forum Smoked Prata facing brick were utilised: the first, a standard 215 x 102.5 x 65mm, to set out the module for the facades; the second, an identical solid brick, hand cut and laid on site.

Inspired by the traditional eaves of the neighbouring Victorian houses, the Wienerberger brick was used to create a dog-tooth detailing which has been used as a motif throughout the project and incorporated into the patterned steel entrance porches.
