Ravensbourne Park, Lewisham
The creation of a landmark presence to announce the Ravensbourne Park Scheme: 9 no. flats comprising of: 1, 2 & 3-Bedroom Flats, including provisions for car parking & Landscaping
The scheme is set back from Ravensbourne Park, creating a gated scheme, whilst enhancing the existing suburban area. Well designed living spaces mean that the apartments will be flexible and useable and provide dual aspect views of the fields & townscape.
The site offers privacy and protection from traffic noise, with the retention of trees within the site to create “buffer zones” and maintain the landscaped tranquil surroundings of the site
The building footprint is responds to the existing landscape and trees presently on the site. Our design proposals provide private and communal gardens to the dwellings located south east of the site. These areas provide an environment for recreation for the residents and encourage a range of activities set within a designed landscape framework. Coupled with the private balconies, and Ladywell fields the there is a sufficient amount of amenity space provided in the scheme.
The highest storey for the scheme is further set back from the building line and contains the 2 penthouse apartments.
Private balconies provide defensible space for residents which are directly accessible from properties. These areas provide opportunities for play and recreation within the privacy of their own demise and are clearly separated from the more communal shared garden environment. These spaces provide secure amenity space at each level of the scheme.
Green roofs will attract biodiversity providing significant environmental benefits including increased biodiversity, rainwater harvesting, improvements in air quality, acoustics and energy efficiency of the buildings.
