Budget: £14 million

This mixed-use development consists of 117 Residential Units and approximately 4000sft of commercial area. It is comprised of four blocks, varying in height between six and nine storeys, set around a raised internal private landscaped courtyard.

The final side of the courtyard is enclosed by a row of three storey mews houses, which front a newly created pedestrianised public route that invites the local community into the development thus integrating into this area of south London.

The scheme represents a reduction in density over a previously approved scheme for the site, and increases family-oriented housing instead of what was principally designed as one and two-bed flats.

The development provides ample amenity space in the form of balconies, roof terraces, gardens and a communal courtyard. The flats are predominantly dual aspect and aim to ensure a high quality of life for all residents.
