A new build residential development in South Norwood
This new–build development on Portland Road will provide seven much–needed, generous, bright, and well–designed apartments. These will reinvigorate a vacant and overgrown corner site on a South Norwood high street which has remained unchanged since the previous building was destroyed in a gas explosion ten years ago.
We have worked closely with the Local Authority to produce this scheme. It has been heavily influenced by our ultimate aim of contributing to the improvement and regeneration of Portland Road through the introduction of a high–quality development that reflects the most successful elements of the Local Area of Special Character.
The massing along Portland Road has been deliberately split into three to reflect the plot widths opposite. In addition, the red brick gabled façades have been replayed and formed using contemporary decorative red brick (which reflects the site's past as a brickyard) and standing–seam metal in the same colour, to produce a sleek silhouette. The apartments themselves will each enjoy a sizeable terrace, as well as spacious and naturally–lit living accommodation.
