Discover detached housing architecture

Standing alone and standing out from the crowd – browse examples of British detached house architecture and be inspired for your next project

A detached house, also known as a stand-alone house, is one of the most desirable types of home. According to a 2022 report by Halifax, there has been a surge in buyer demand for detached properties during and after the pandemic. That’s caused the average price of bigger, detached homes to grow by nearly twice the rate as smaller semi-detached, terraced houses or apartments.

For prospective homeowners, a detached house offers more privacy and less noise than in properties with shared walls. There’s added ‘kerb appeal’ and even the chance for extensions and renovations to maximise the property’s longevity as families grow. 

If you’re designing a single-family detached house, this collection of architecture examples shows you how British architects are creating the family homes of the future, using Wienerberger building envelope solutions. Discover how one architect created a contemporary and eye-catching extension for an idyllic Cotswold cottage, without sacrificing the heritage look and feel; see how luxurious new build homes leverage the quality of beautifully textured facing bricks for a classic aesthetic; and discover how re-roofing can breathe new life into a beloved family home.
