This proposal seeks to replace an existing dwelling with 10 x high quality and highly sustainable new homes. The proposal consists of 6x2 bed, 1x 3 bed and 3x 1 bed units.


Located under than half a mile from Gipsy Hill Station and within short walking distance of both Crystal Palace Park and Norwood Park the site offers good access to amenities and local schools and is an ideal location to add new family housing.


Taking design cues from the surrounding richly diverse architectural character the scheme embodies a ‘contemporary vernacular’. Through a considered craftsman-like approach to the detailing and high quality natural materials, the proposal will reflect the quality and elegance of the broader historic street scape, producing a scheme that complements and enhances its context.

The street scape is currently occupied by large scale domestic properties with classical proportions and more modern flats towards the south west end of the road. The proposed scheme aims to acts to address these two vernaculars whilst complimenting the character of the area.


Renewables will be incorporated for energy generation, water collection and grey water recycling. High levels of insulation, air-tight construction and high-performance glazing will ensure a fabric-first approach to energy conservation. The design also incorporates numerous biodiversity strategies such as built-in bird and bat boxes, green roofs with native meadow-like planting and PV panels.


The landscape proposal provides direct access to above policy amenity space with a variety of native planting to promote Biodiversity.
