    Concept Design

The 31-unit mixed-use development includes a six storey building and a three storey building with a mix of 1, 2 and 3 bed homes. There is over 1,700 sqm of commercial, office and leisure space, which includes relocating the much-loved Clip n’ Climb centre to a new purpose-built, larger building.

The project design uses robust, durable materials with London Stock Brick as the primary material throughout the scheme. Horizontal pre-cast concrete elements are inserted at two storey intervals to line the floor-plates and breakdown the height of the building. The recessed top floor on the taller block is clad in a metal finish.

Measures such as privacy screens are included in the design to mitigate potential overlooking to neighbouring properties and to safeguard the privacy of future residents.

Sustainability is a key part of the schemes’ design, with a 35% reduction in CO2 emissions being achieved through a combination of energy demand reduction and the inclusion of PV panels on the roofs.
