Behind a dark brickwork exterior, this suburban home by British studio Snook Architects features a double-height entrance lobby, a rugged stone fireplace and a skylight that covers an entire corridor. Located in a leafy suburb outside Liverpool, the Westmorland house was designed by local firm Snook Architects as the residence for a couple in their mid 40s. The building has a concrete structure that is exposed throughout the interior, while the exterior walls are clad with a dark engineering brick, interspersed with large windows and timber panels. The entrance lobby creates a natural divide through the centre of the house. Upon entering, residents can turn left to enter the main living and dining spaces, go right to find a garage and study, or head straight upstairs. The large living room centres around a log fire, which sits between the lounge and dining areas. The walls are bare concrete, complemented by wooden furniture, stone floor tiles and a patterned rug.
This is stuff I like, old and new, that I hope you do too.
