Coldharbour Lane consists of large Villas that were constructed around 1844, the site in particular sits within the Loughborough Conservation Area and the current property has been subdivided into flats with a large communal garden to the rear We were approached by our client for a feasibility study to assess the potential of providing a modern 1 bedroom retirement home by utilising the existing structure from garages at the rear of the site.
Cherry and Pevsner extract
East of Brixton, the area to the south of Coldharbour Lane was laid
out circa 1844, probably by Henry Currey, with some quite elegant
villas, single or in pairs...... Loughborough Park, skirting a pleasant new park created by Lambeth as part of the extensive reconstruction of the
neighbourhood in the 1970’s..........
The new dwelling sits comfortably within the large grounds of the rear garden by sympathetically using materials that are sensitive to the conservation area and host buildings. A proposed palette of pre-weatherd cedar, stock brick, structural glass and green roof over help the dwelling to blend into its natural surroundings.
