This project involves a planning application for the redevelopment of this suburban site with a 2 and a half storey apartment building containing 9 apartments with car parking, landscaping and associated amenities.
The client’s requirements are for an apartment building, traditional in design, intendedfor downsizer end users. Each apartment is to have reception rooms with separate kitchens, with two to three bedrooms and an outdoor terrace or balcony.
The building sets back from the surrounding roads and landscaped surrounding properties, so as to create a sense of an appropriately scaled development within a spacious landscaped setting.
The building has been designed to respond to the local context and vernacular in terms of design, appearance, character and materials. The building will be constructed with a light white / yellow coloured Gault brick, with stone lintels, string courses and bay window feature to enhance the building’s character.
The design has an architectural quality that is intended to add character to and compliment the area, in accordance with the current London Plan and Lifetime Homes criteria.
