Palatine Homes

The Challenge

The design of two new two-storey, four-bedroomed homes with integral garages on the outskirts of Burnham village, Slough, was to be derived from the historical and varied architectural character of the surrounding area.

The Solution

Palatine Homes

Brick Type
Hampton Rural Blend

Burnham village, Slough


It was important that the houses were not visually obtrusive in terms of height and detail. Their traditionally pitched roofs incorporate attractive half gable ends, and the front elevation includes detailed brickwork, stone cills and window heads.

Forterra’s Hampton Rural Blend brick from the Ecostock range was selected for the build.

The Benefits

Ecostock is the most sustainable stock brick available in the UK. It is a high quality facing brick with recycled content. The range carries BES 6001 Responsible Sourcing certification.
