LYALL UNVEILS BLACKHEATH BLOCKS
John Lyall Architects has revealed these images of a residential development planned for Blackheath, south-east London. The 1,000m 2 scheme, on a narrow brownfield site, will replace a former bus garage and create 13 homes. A mix of two-bedroom flats and duplex apartments, the development is split into two four-storey blocks overlooking a central courtyard.
The front block, facing on to Invicta Road, will have white porcelain brick walls, while the building at the rear will be constructed from black glazed bricks.
Project architect Oliver Jackson, an associate with John Lyall, said: 'A crucial feature of the flats is that they don't overlook the primary school next door, so the windows have been orientated front to back and there are none on the side elevations. However, the scheme will have great views across to the Millennium Dome.' The development is set to go before Greenwich council's planning committee in November and could start on site in the new year.
