New High-end Apartments in Clapham
This site is located on an empty garden plot, which was historically occupied by a large family-sized home in Clapham, South West London. It is now being transformed into luxury apartments for a commercial developer, with a gross development value (GDV) of circa £3.9m and a forecast ROI of 23%.
The main challenges of the site included the close proximity of a five-storey residential block and a row of trees along the boundary that are all subject to Tree Preservation Orders (TPOs). The solution involved setting the development away from the boundary to mitigate overlooking and tree concerns, whilst proposing a basement to add approximately 150m² worth of internal floor space. The mix of two and three-bedroom apartments benefit from having separate entrances and a large well landscaped communal garden.
Our client is keen to ensure the building is designed with the future in mind, which we are delighted to support. We have taken a fabric first approach to ensure the building performs well in terms of its energy usage. Our design also has solar photovoltaic panels on the roof of the building and electric car charging points.
The proposal is at its final stage of planning with the hope to gain consent for four high-end, modern apartments located in a desirable area of Clapham.
