Jo Townshend Architects were engaged to replace an existing single storey extension to a large residential property in Brixton, with a light, openable space which would encourage parties and gatherings, and to achieve this with a minimal environmental impact.

Jo Townshend had seen Ketley's  quarry tiles in use at Jerwood Space Gallery and decided they would work well for this project. The Staffordshire blue brick-sized tiles have been laid both inside and outside of the new extension, aiding a seamless connection between the interior and exterior, and creating a flexible space for open plan living.

The simple of palette of materials includes high quality joinery and timber which  sits well with the natural  tones of the Staffordshire blue clay floor tiles.
