We are excited to announce a scheme we have designed for a block of apartments has just gained planning permission in Croydon.
The proposed development is in a leafy suburb and at the bottom of a large garden. This type of site means we have to be sensitive to the concern of overdevelopment that often arises when developing at the back of an existing property.
The new three-storey nine apartment block has been designed to be contemporary in appearance yet sympathetic to the historic surroundings. Red brick facades and lighter stone surrounds to the apertures are a nod to the detailing of the main property but without the ornate decoration. We’ve concealed the gutters and made the eaves flush to the building to create a clean, crisp contemporary silhouette.
We have also carefully considered the form of the building to avoid harming the mature trees that are nearby. By introducing a new basement storey in the natural slope of the site ensures there is minimal visual impact of the new building against the old.
Internally each apartment features generous open plan living areas with large bedrooms. At basement level, each will have landscaped gardens, while at the upper floors inset balconies that provide a private space to relax – a rare luxury in London.
Our design introduces a landscaped courtyard space to create a new communal social space for the enjoyment of both new and existing residents.
We are pleased to have achieved this planning permission in Croydon for our client – a commercial property development business. We’re looking forward to taking the project forward and breaking ground early in 2020.
