Information about this scheme

This is the first stand-alone residential scheme developed by Derwent London. Although not listed, the original art deco façade to the south was retained with a new concrete framed building behind. The exterior is clad with three types of bespoke terra cotta panels. The design explores the art deco modernism of the original façade and cleverly recognises the 1930’s horizontal lines in a sophisticated and modern way whilst avoiding pastiche. Generous interiors and stylish contemporary living space have been detailed in a very elegant manner. The result is a landmark block of 16 high quality flats, leading regeneration in the area by re-introducing an active street frontage alongside retail and improvements to the public realm to create a sense of place.
