AMA has achieved planning permission for a three unit new-build residential development in Lansdowne Grove, London.
Situated on a prominent corner plot, the proposal acts as a bridge between the existing Victorian terraced housing of Lansdowne Grove and the more sporadic, varied massing found on Dog Lane. Consisting of a series of volumes, the scheme is carved and orientated to maximise the site geometries whilst allowing for the separation of the privately owned ground floor unit and two rented units above.
Informed by the fenestration of the surrounding Victorian housing, the design references the generous proportions of bay windows along the street and setting lintel and sill heights, providing a commonality between the two.
Designed for a specialist bricklayer client, the lower level is formed from an alternating stacked brick pattern which defines the garden perimeter and boundary of the site along Dog Lane as well as acting as a design solution to the often vandalised white rendered facade of the existing building. The perforated brick openings provide privacy to the street facing spaces on the ground floor, while the pigmented concrete lintel divides the ground and upper two floors alluding to the internal organisation of the design.
