The brief was to modernise and extend an existing 1960’s housing block in South East London, adding additional apartments and increasing both parking and green spaces. The client wanted to establish a new identity for the development, referencing the look and feel of the surrounding area in a contemporary way.
Our design focuses on the creation of an additional storey and new garden areas towards the rear of the complex. Traditional brick work forms the lower half of the building, whilst the materials and form of the upper half provide a dynamic re-interpretation of the surrounding area. The new upper floors are composed of an anodized metal and glass structure, with aluminium balconies dividing the separate units.
