Dexter Moren unwraps £5m Fulham PRS housing

  • Comment

Dexter Moren Associates has completed this 1,784m2 housing scheme in Fulham, South West London

ARCHITECT’S VIEWPROJECT DATA

Built on a brownfield site near Earls Court, the £5 million project for Singapore developer Favor Well includes nine family-sized townhouses for private-rental.

The development includes a new street frontage of two houses on Lillie Road with another seven houses forming a terrace behind.

According to the practice, the scheme ‘rethinks the London town house by deliberately moving away from homes with rear gardens’.

It features a mix of staggered frontages, setbacks, stacked outdoors spaces, and enclosed courtyards.

Architect’s view

This is a rare example of a development which provides new spacious family homes for rent in the heart of London that also have the benefit of private outdoor space and off-street parking. We have been lucky enough to work with a clients, who has been supportive of our innovative solutions and contemporary architectural style.

The development includes a new street frontage of two houses on Lillie Road with another seven houses forming a terrace behind, perpendicular to the road. The terrace fronts onto a ‘mews-style’ space with a shared access and thoughtful landscaping, whilst the Lillie Road frontage is set back to allow for front gardens and vehicle parking similar to other properties in the street.

The external facades offer a play of high quality materials, elegantly proportioned shapes, and protruding and recessed planes to provide a strong rhythm and unified architectural expression across the mews whilst clearly identifying each property as an individual home. We have deliberately avoided a pastiche of the various surrounding architectural styles, combining simple compositions with traditional materials and elements to add a distinctly modern chapter in the history and development of Lillie Road.
