Kensington House: Brick Wall Mock-up - OPENSTUDIO
Kensington House: Brick Wall Mock-up

Our contractor has made a mock-up brick wall at the site office in London, Kensington.

We have tested lime mortar samples to ensure that the colour complies with the one selected at planning.

Bricks have been laid in a monk bond pattern. This bond was traditionally used in monasteries until the 13th and 14th century, due to the limited use of headers and therefore lower cost to lay. It creates a series of vertical chains down the fa├žade that we think are very beautiful.
