Planning permission granted for stepped housing scheme in Stockwell Green
Architects pH+ and Walbury Estates Ltd. have received planning permission for 24 new homes in Stockwell Green situated in a dense urban site sandwiched between student housing and a grade II listed community resource centre. Located within a conservation area, 2-7 Stockwell Green compliments the immediate site and the local area through the use of three blocks that step up incrementally from the adjacent Hudson House to address the taller Glassyard building.
The proposal delivers a contemporary mixed-use development, engaging a strong community aspect for residents with a series of shared spaces providing high quality amenity, aspect and outlook. The facade of the building references the traditional materiality of the area; buff brick, light bronze zinc cladding, and decorative back lit panels are layered throughout the project to fit the building within the surrounding context. The brickwork is detailed with patterns of recessed and protruding bricks, and a secondary contrasting metal-clad inner layer highlights openings and balconies as well as the duel aspect windows that feature in every dwelling as standard.
Three communal terraces at different moments throughout the scheme provide welcoming spaces for residents to enjoy together. At the centre of the project a courtyard backs onto 129sqm of retail space, which replaces the retail warehouse currently on site creating an important new active frontage on the streetscape to positively impact the surrounding area.
Andy Puncher, pH+ Director, said: “Our scheme on Stockwell Green continues our exploration of the importance of shared green space in the development of high density, high quality, mixed used schemes. The project is a microcosm of the City, drawing on the manner, language and materiality of the adjoining Conservation area a large balcony lined formal courtyard is supplemented by a variety of more domestically scaled gardens and parks creating spaces for new and existing communities to meet and identities to form.”
Johan Brunnberg Walbury Estates Ltd., said: pH+ have delivered a high quality and innovative scheme taking into account the surrounding area, buildings and local resident’s needs. Walbury Estates have worked closely with the pH+ team from conceptual design to full planning being granted. This is Walburys second scheme in Stockwell and having pH+ onboard has created an exceptionally well designed addition to the Stockwell Green area.
