but on closer inspection becomes
evident through the attention to
composition, to detail and to the
crafting of the beautifully sculpted

‘It is a pleasure to encounter such
restrained architectural craft: all

quite rightly melds into the historic

Blue Umbra Sawtooth and
Standard
Location: London
The project architect has shown
keen understanding of how to
enhance a difficult space using
brick, with minimal impact on
neighbouring properties.
The judges commented that the
property was ‘well organised,
beautifully detailed and an
exemplary use of brownfield land
to make a new home’. The judges
were impressed by the innovation
on such a demanding site where
the blurring distinction between
the inside and outside of the
property provide the owner with an
extended sense of space, making
the overall project a wonderful
environment in which to live. The
judges said that the client should
be ‘proud’.
The basket weave effect of the
brickwork is something to behold.
The use of shaped brick creates
a tactile quality that softens the
appearance of the building. The
blue bricks blend fantastically with
the pre-existing wall on the plot.
All in all a ‘well presented’ and
‘beautiful house’.

Location: London
‘A carefully conceived and

residential and commercial uses
within shared courtyards’.
Foundry Mews’ design concept
allows the courtyard to run the
whole length of the site facilitating
ground floor access to the

commercial units as well as a
communal area for residents. The
‘delightful brickwork’ is highly
commended and the ‘choice
and use of materials creates a
handsome development with good
size and scale, which is sensitive
to the historic use of the site and
local vernacular’.
The brick is used with faultless
consistency throughout, with
protruding and recessed headers
used to good effect. The judges
enjoyed the lively feel of the
courtyard and the way the
development works to create
attractively light and airy spaces for
residential use.

Architect: Foster Lomas

Brick: Wienerberger: Forum
Smoked Prata
Location: London
The choice of brick works to
create a luminary, yet distinctly
private housing development
within London’s Dulwich.
The articulated brick facades
are supplemented by dog-tooth
detailing; a cunning reference to
the traditional eave details seen
on the neighbouring Victorian
terraces. The judges especially
enjoyed this as it ‘provides variety
but maintains the simplicity
and calm which pervades the
project’. Wellbeing is clearly a
consideration of the building, and
the judges prized its seamless
visual connectivity from house
to garden with high ceilings to
maximise the amount of daylight
residents enjoy inside.

ST JOHN’S HILL - PHASE 1
Architect: Hawkins Brown
Brickwork Contractor:
Lee Marley Brickwork
Contractors
Brick: Wienerberger:
Staffordshire Smooth, Glazed
Brick in red, yellow, orange &
salmon
Location: London
This ‘stellar’ architectural project
has attracted attention through its
diverse building design, and the
use of several types of brick.
The judges were particularly
impressed by the ‘thoughtful
touches to the project, and the
hard work of the architects to
add interest through brick and
its many variations of colour and
detailing’. Communal spaces
are generous and the glazedbrick tunnel ‘creates a means
of wayfinding for residents’. The
building has special significance
as Peabody worked in partnership
with local artist, Rodney Harris,
who produced four brick reliefs
that have been incorporated into
the buildings’ facades. They are
inspired by the estate’s history and
include clothing from WWII, garden
tools and a sink, which hark back
to the communal washing facilities
of the original estate. Additionally,
in the maisonettes, the bricks are
pushed back to form an intricate,
aesthetic pattern.
One judge commented, ‘the
attention to detail in this project is
exceptional. The nod to the site’s
heritage is wonderful in keeping
the past alive through modern
architecture.’

Red Blend
Location: Essex
Brick was instrumental in the
construction of the school’s
Learning Resource Centre which
as an educational environment
was subject to a myriad of
practical considerations.
As an extension to the existing
library, the subtle relief patterning
of a heritage red blend brick
provides an understated aesthetic,
which gives a distinct character
without detracting from the
overall flow between buildings.
This was articulated by one
judge as ‘blending in easily while
simultaneously bringing its own
unique contribution’.
As well as providing an essential
learning space fit for expanding
young minds, brick has also been
used to refocus the school’s sense
of communal centre, through the
tasteful use of brick archways and
a new brick arcade. The quality of
execution in these examples led to
the judge’s summary: ‘exemplary
brickwork’.
