* Residential Architecture: Wakefield Street Townhouses by Piercy & Company

Posted by the editors on Tuesday, 3 July 2012

Residential Architecture: Wakefield Street Townhouses by Piercy & Company: “..These London townhouses by architects Piercy & Company have chunky banisters formed from thickly layered birch plywood..The stairs zigzag up from the basement floor to the second floor roof terraces of each of the three residences, which are located behind a listed wall within the conservation area of Bloomsbury..The two-storey-high facades of each house are constructed from a sandy-coloured brick that is lighter in colour than the brown and red brickwork of the surrounding historic buildings..The heights of the buildings intentionally line up with their neighbours, while window sills and lintels have been designed with matching proportions..Perforated steel louvers shade the windows and skylights bring daylight into each house from above..”  Extensive glazing, natural light, lightwells; stylish contemporary townhouses with attractive staircases of birch and glass..
