This challenging site set on the edge of a railway cutting, in the conservation area of Grove Park, creates 8 new dwellings meeting Code for Sustainable Homes Level 3, with 25% of the energy needs of the development met on site through renewables.
The six storey development provides three unique duplex apartments and five lateral apartments each with private terraces, a basement car park providing 8 secure parking spaces and cycle stores and access to a private landscaped garden.
The development is intrinsically a brick box with a flat roof. The street elevation is clad with perforated copper, containing the balconies and lifts. The windows and doors are oak, with oak cladding to the ground floor.
In addition to exceeding CfSH Level 3, the scheme also meets Lifetime Homes and Secured By Design standards.

To work with the constructor developer client to realize on site a complex design by John Smart Architects, producing eight complex, high quality homes on a steeply sloping site adjoining a railway cutting in a conservation area of south London.
Various planning amendments were required to resolve the technical complexities of the site. We worked with our client to create a robust technical design incorporating a unique architectural language which delivered bespoke dwellings whilst achieving statutory compliance.
Each of the dwellings is uniquely designed, a highly functional layout, efficient but spacious, beautifully constructed with private terraces giving framed views of the city. Each of units sold either off plan or very soon after completion.
