Developer: Populo Living|
A conversion of the currently unoccupied Old Fire Station building into London Affordable Rent homes with a commercial unit at ground level. Removal of the detracting unoriginal elements and structures will take place with the aim of retaining and restoring the majority of the original fabric. Some alterations to the historic layout are proposed to create efficient access to the homes and flat layouts that meet contemporary design standards and aspirations.
This historic development of 7 units will provide open plan kitchen / dining rooms creating a spacious arrangement. Three of the apartments have generously sized balconies accessible from the kitchen / dining spaces and the new balcony doors are glazed to maximise light and views. Any retained existing windows are generously sized. Bedrooms are arranged to include storage and are positioned away from the kitchen area. At ground floor level, the existing raised level means that there are no privacy issues from the street. Secure cycle storage is provided and the residents have access to local amenities on the High Street and local green spaces at Central Park.
