We have secured planning consent for 47 new homes at 92 Leyton Green Road Walthamstow for Waltham Forest Council. Our designs were developed in partnership with the Council and contractor Jerram Falkus. Named Cedar Lawn, the scheme will provide 19 one bedroom, 16 two bedroom and 12 three bedroom homes.
The development, on the site of an existing respite care centre, is being used to fund the construction of a new centre and therapy hub nearby.
Our design repairs the urban grain by introducing two new terraces, one re-establishing a street frontage along Leyton Green Road, the other located to the east, forming a mews street between, leading on to private gardens, a shared communal garden and a play area. The terraces have been arranged so as to retain the existing trees on the site as far as possible. The building rises to five storeys to provide a focal point at the junction of Epsom Road and Matlock Road.
The material treatment and articulation of the facades are a contemporary response to the surrounding context, with careful attention paid to the detailing of the entrance to each home.
The project is currently at construction stage and due for completion in 2021.
