We are pleased to announce an exciting new project at Leigham Court Road, London SW16.
This residential development at Leigham Court Road represents best practice in both conservation and new build proposals, with the site located within the Streatham Hill Conservation Area.
An existing building on the site was once the home of printing offices for the South London Press. This will be retained whilst recent unsympathetic extensions and additions will be removed to restore the building to its original 1930’s Art Deco style appearance.
A new build to the rear of the site and an additional floor extension to the front building are proposed to accommodate a retail unit and 35 well designed contemporary apartments of mixed tenure. The one storey extension to the front of the building will be set back from the street to disguise its additional mass whilst the new development at the back of the site will stand off the site boundary to provide light to lower floors and to respect and complement the existing building.
The proposal aims to restore the character of the South London Press building to one of visual significance within the area while the redevelopment to the rear aims to be distinctive and contemporary in style yet respectful to the existing building. A retail unit on ground floor aims to maintain the active street front on Leigham Court Road, appropriate to the town centre nature of the area.
