Making clever use of an old pub yard enclosed by aged white brick walls, the ‘Strange House’ for architect Hugh Strange of London-based Hugh Strange Architects turns an otherwise unused urban pocket into a livable home and studio.

Hugh Strange Architects is London based studio developing reputation for well-crafted buildings that marry innovative construction with a sensitivity approach to site conditions. In their projects, like in this old pub yard transformed into house, they are concerned with the art of building and promote practical solutions that are both beautiful and cost-effective.

“The house is sited in an old pub yard largely concealed from the street outside by an existing brick perimeter wall. It is small, low budget and inhabits an unpromising site yet carefully uses the materials and existing site conditions to create a generous and beautiful new home. The house is structured with solid spruce panels fabricated in Swiss factory and tropical hardwood from Nicaragua, felled by hurricane. the project had been summed up as a house that exudes humanity and warmth and is the work of a confident and clever hand."
