Alan Camp Architects wins planning for housing scheme in south London

Alan Camp Architects has been given the green light for this scheme to deliver 10 new townhouses and apartments in Eltham, south London.

The project, which has been backed by Turnhold Properties, includes six three-bedroom townhouses and four one- and two-bedroom flats.

Replacing the former Eltham Fitness Centre in Greenwich, the project comprises two blocks - the townhouse being one block, and the apartments the other - which will be separated by the townhouses' gardens.

The three-bedroom properties will also have an extra roof terrace at third-floor level, while the apartments will have either a roof terrace or balcony.

Practice director Paul Gendle said: 'A key concern was to prevent overlooking the homes on this relatively high-density development while ensuring all buildings have sufficient light.

'The flats have clear glass windows angled away from neighbouring properties and the townhouses to prevent overlooking.

'In addition, the bedrooms of the flats have a random arrangement of obscured stained-glass windows on the north and south elevations. These windows, which are fixed shut, allow extra daylight into the rooms, providing an interesting feature at night when viewed from the townhouses,' he added.
