This project involved the construction of 21 flats for Origin Housing on a compact site with differing levels. This resulted in the need for split level floors, where by the rear half of the site is lower than the front.

The project included a mixture of 1, 2 and 3 bed units, with 2 units on the ground floor being constructed to wheelchair standards. The scheme was designed to comply with the London Design Guide, with each unit containing garden space, balconies or large terraces. The ground floor also includes a commercial unit, which faces the main road.

The scheme is predominantly glass and brick with render to parts and also rain screen system to the top floor. The construction is concrete frame, with lightweight metal framing construction to the top floor.
