Victorian Terraced Houses

Studio Ben Allen Supplemented This House with Brick Arches

— February 13, 2018 — Art & Design
The rear of this beautiful Victorian terraced house has been extended by Studio Ben Allen to incorporate two arches, constructed from locally handmade bricks. The vault structure technique dates back as early as 2nd Millennium BC in Mesopotamian brick architecture, so the new elements grant the Victorian terraced house an more vintage feel.

"The arch form has been carried through to the interiors as a design motif," ultimately creating a rather utilitarian ambiance. To balance out the material, Studio Ben Allen has installed oak cabinets and counter tops to meet the dominant character of the brick. The extension of the Victorian terraced house makes room for a kitchen, as well as a living and working space. Surrounding the structure with glass doors, the architects have created "one expansive space with the courtyard appearing as a room within a room."
