Planning Approval for New Apartments in Leafy London Borough
Full planning consent has been granted for our proposals to redevelop this heavily wooded site in the London Borough of Sutton for a private client.
Defined as an ‘Area of Special Local Character’ it was essential that the architecture responded to the well preserved interwar houses and mature trees which occupy many of the surrounding streets.
The nine apartments are arranged over three floors, around a compact central circulation core. The site will be landscaped, carefully preserving the existing mature trees. All of the dwellings are designed to exceed the London Housing Design Guide standards and will achieve and exceed local carbon reduction targets.
The steeply pitched roof conceals the upper floor of accommodation, whilst referring to the historic house typologies. The roofs will create dramatic vaulted spaces in the dwellings whilst the overhanging roof forms loggia terraces which provide views into the surrounding tree canopy.
We have carefully selected a simple palette of quality materials including brick, stone and copper cladding which will create a durable well-mannered addition to the area.
