Appeal win for contemporary residential scheme in Kensington
Planning Permission has been granted on appeal for our contemporary new-build apartment scheme in a Conservation Area in Kensington. The proposal will create five new apartments on a complex site within a dense historic context.
The scheme takes the existing rhythm of the street elevation, providing a contemporary understanding of the found Arts and Crafts heritage. To protect sense of privacy, the proposed apartments are inward focused, arranged around generous interior courtyard gardens. We are using this seclusion to provide a soothing spatial experience to contrast the hectic and often visually excessive experience of the surrounding urban life.
We are now commencing detail design with a view to start construction later this year.
