Bowman Riley Architects was commissioned to prepare the detailed designs for four new build high quality maisonettes in the St Marks conservation area, which forms part of the Oval neighbourhood in the London Borough of Lambeth.
The development has been designed to be in keeping with the character of the conservation area, which is predominantly residential with surrounding buildings between two and three storeys.
The layout to the new maisonettes have been carefully designed to maximise the quality of space and amenity. The design involves internal covered courtyards and a balcony space within the walls of the building and a glazed roof winter garden to the rear of the properties.
The development is intended to feature the following energy saving measures: improved u-values, efficient heating, hot water and lighting systems and photovoltaic panels to meet 20% reduction of Carbon emissions from on-site renewable energy generation.
