Overview
Location: Chingford, London
Value: £6.5 million
Size: 3,410sqm/ 30 Dwellings
Programme: 2016 – 2017
Service: Architecture

Our proposals for a well-considered residential development enhance the existing neighbourhood and transform the site of a former petrol filling station. 30 high-quality, sustainable homes, including five three-bedroom family dwellings are provided along with social amenity spaces and car parking.

The proposals successfully reconcile a complex mix of building typologies, heights, roads and streets that surround the site. At five storeys on the primary street frontage stepping down to two storeys adjacent the terraces, the massing responds to the form of neighbouring buildings, respecting privacy and day light to create a harmonious relationship. A private courtyard to the rear of the development provides a communal amenity space and integrates secure car parking.

Elevations are predominantly brick with sensitive and traditional decorative detailing to define scale and texture with a concrete panel inserted to the west elevation to complement the composition.

Full case study coming soon.
