Planning Permission in Clapham

Planning Permission in Clapham

Planning permission has been granted for our residential scheme in Clapham.
The design for this site is inspired by its historical use as a milk bottling facility for a local dairy; creating a small community of new dwellings in this back-land setting, behind an existing Victorian villa style building (which is to be retained).

The constrained nature of the site has been managed through the plan arrangement, positioning and orientating the units to avoid direct overlooking and retaining privacy within the intimate setting. The creation of a landscaped courtyard to provide communal amenity space also enhances the outlook for residents and adds to the sense of community.

Balconies are ‘carved’ out of the dwellings at upper floors, creating more interesting and varied forms. External staircases break up the development into smaller parts, reading as a collection of individual ‘villas’ which respond to the proportions of the existing building at the front of the site. An ancillary block reflecting an old coach house building frames the entrance to the development.
