Yellow Brick Facade

EBM has supplied pale yellow Danish bricks, evoking London yellow stocks, for a newbuild environmentally sustainable house at Brockley, south-east London.

Designed by award-winning architect Jack Woolley, the elegant contemporary house at 83 Foxberry Road blends subtly with the urban streetscape on a compact site which was formerly the yard of a Victorian greengrocer’s shop.

The yellow brick façade is a simple elevation with frameless windows and a brick-clad entrance door. It was designed to fit into a fragmented building line due to the misaligned planes of neighbouring buildings.

The architect specified Petersen’s pale yellow D71 linear brick.  While the colour reflects London yellow stock brick, the tone is lighter and the profile shallower, evoking a contemporary feel.

The bricks were laid in stretcher bond with bucket-handle pointed joints, using lime mortar.

The design is environmentally responsible and certified to level 4 under the Code for Sustainable Homes.
