Working with developer Arrant Land, 31/44 Architects has completed a new speculative development on an end-of-terrace plot in East Dulwich, south London. The location is a typical Victorian terrace ubiquitous in London’s suburbs, but this newcomer is anything but pedestrian. The house shares the visual language of the pattern-book brick Victorian houses with their ornamental arched entrances, but it is designed in a contemporary idiom and confidently terminates the terrace with a highly distinct proposition. The ambition of this project has been to design a contemporary dwelling which references and evolves the character and rhythm of the terrace. Red House takes its name from the warm red brick, which is evident as a highlight brick in the existing terrace and is used here as the main building material.
