Moray Mews | London

Project Scope: Development of eight luxury courtyard homes

Project Industry: New Build, Residential

Moray Mews is an award-winning development of eight contemporary courtyard houses located near Finsbury Park.

The narrow development site, an overgrown waste ground with a former life as stable and coach house accommodation for the surrounding houses, provided many challenges which were overcome with a radical but sensitive scheme.

The juxtaposition of the sleek design, projecting glass bay windows and rustic style of the handmade Reclamation Yellow Stock bricks successfully encapsulates the developmentā€™s urban context.

The bricks were chosen by the developer for their ability to add an instantly established appearance to the new build properties, whilst offering a respectful nod to the surrounding area, built from original London Stock. The convenience of a standard metric size, along with the reclamation-style textured finish, offered the ideal solution for this project.

Reclaimed granite setts create a new cobbled frontage, accompanying the bricks to enhance the charm of the mews.
