A unique home in Peckham has been created using a distinctive brick design and an even more unusual roof terrace.

The home features hit and miss brickwork, archways and a rooftop accessed via a greenhouse is designed to stand out from bland new builds, but also pay homage to traditional Victorian homes in the area.
