Parchmore Road, Croydon
The site is a corner plot along Parchmore Road currently occupied by garages in mixed to poor condition and a surface car park. This scheme delivers 7no. apartments and 2no. houses in a sustainable location enhancing this corner plot seen by many people everyday.
The design team considered the most appropriate ways of introducing a contemporary apartment building and houses onto the site. The north-eastern most part of the proposal, closest to No. 2 Fountain Road, has been designed as a continuation of the established alignment, height, and roof plane of Fountain Road. The aim is to deliver as many units as possible whilst reconciling the townscape context including making the most of the corner while stepping down to relate to the houses of Fountain Rad. All 7 of the apartments are allocated private outdoor amenity areas, while the 2no. houses have been provided rear gardens.
This scheme has been granted planning approval and has started on site Autumn 2019, and was completed at the end of 2021.
