In the words of the council a “wonderfully clever development” of eight contemporary residential units on a narrow light industrial site in Southfields, South West London.
The apartments are generous and modern, flooded with natural light, and are situated within three-storey town houses with full basements, designed to compliment and continue the existing adjacent Victorian terrace.
The new residential units have been arranged within four townhouses, to mirror the housing stock of the local area. The design was intended to be in keeping with the local vernacular, proposing a contemporary interpretation of the existing Victorian properties through the careful detailing of traditional materials and construction techniques.
Intelligent orientation of the proposal as the site narrows, allowed for the addition of the fourth town house and units at first and second floor level, whilst mitigating any overlooking issues and maintaining the privacy of both neighbouring and future occupants.
