Brick Studio is a design + build annexe to a 19th century Coach House in Manchester M16. The elongated site presents the external landscape as series of terraces and raised beds with the new and old buildings arranged around a courtyard garden.
External engineering brick contrasts with the NORI red brick of the Coach House. Robust but with a lightly grained surface, the building is set out with no cut bricks and all joints are recessed to allow a clear expression of this quality.
Internal common brick walls with flush joints are white washed with mineral paint allowing a subtle relief and maximises the northern lighting conditions.
