[FIRST LOOK + PLANS] These eight new mews houses in Peckham, designed by Southwark-based Alan Camp Architects, have just been completed
The development, in Oglander Road, London SE15, features eight two-storey terrace houses - seven three-bedroom houses and one four-bedroom house.
The site, near Peckham Rye, was previously occupied by an industrial warehouse and is accessed via a narrow undercroft access road leading from Oglander Road. The development has been built to achieve high thermal and air tightness performance standards, and each house features an external rainwater harvesting system for garden irrigation.
‘The concept behind the design was to create a development of mews houses which would not only relate to the surrounding area but also have its own contemporary identity,’ says John Everett, project architect for Alan Camp Architects.
‘The development was designed to respond to its immediate context and the various overlooking issues into neighbouring residential gardens and adjacent houses. Each house features an angled standing-seam pre-weathered zinc clad bay window, which allows natural daylight to enter the first floor bedroom spaces but also accounts for the overlooking restrictions into neighbouring gardens.’
