Dezeen Debate features “robust and luxurious” brick-clad townhouses

Architecture studio The DHaus Company has finished a row of brick-clad townhouses within the Dartmouth Park Conservation Area in north London called The Arches.

The homes, which replace a derelict petrol station, are named after the arches that form the facade of each house.

Most commenters adored the project. One loved “the colonnade-like feel”, while another labelled it “breathtaking and inspiring”. Yet another said that while the home was “robust and luxurious” they questioned “the scale decision”.
