British studio Snook Architects designed this beautiful brick and concrete home located in a leafy suburb outside Liverpool, England.
Description by Snook Architects:
Bricks were used to accentuate the cantilevering nature of the solid void over the glazed ground floor corner and emphasise the horizontal proportions of the design.
The double-height entrance space, concealed on the front facade, is a surprise experience once the property is entered, exposing the garden and intricately designed steel staircase.
“The warm concrete mass, with its full-height windows and central log fire offer a meeting of the industrial and the cosy.
Natural stone tiles allow for a unbroken run throughout the open-plan space and offer excellent thermal properties for the underfloor heating.
Almost a snug, the room is disconnected from the open nature of the house to retreat and read in relative calm.
