Lewisham Housing

The proposals incorporate six duplex apartments and two flats in a refurbished building and a new penthouse unit on the site of the former Priory Manor Health Centre in Lewisham. The existing facility moved to the newly built Kaleidoscope building on Lewisham High Street in 2006.

The new building is designed to set the retained brick building in stark contrast to the new penthouse and rear duplexes. The brick building at the front of the site will be finished in a matt grey anti-graffiti paint preserving the integrity of the facade whilst the new elements are clad in aluminium panels which gradually tone from gold to silver. This semi-reflective surface mirrors the surrounding historic buildings and brickwork. Glazing is envisaged as frameless and seamless, flush to the aluminium cladding.

The new penthouse will be positioned over the existing brick building, presenting a contemporary cap to the retained brick. The relationship between this new extension and the retained brick plinth is exaggerated by the penthouse sliding over as a regular block, whilst the plinth receeds slightly underneath.

The design ensures that privacy is maintained for the existing residential properties, through the use of cantilevered cranked balconies. These are raised to prevent any views opposite, but angled to promote good long distance views and allow significant levels of early morning light.

Additional private space is provided with courtyards and lights wells, as well as more conventional balconies to the units within the refurbished block. The penthouse includes a large balcony that stretches the full width of the unit.
