Emerging practice PHASE3 completes Art Deco-inspired development in Putney

  • Comment

The six-storey BREEAM Excellent building includes 15 apartments, a shared rooftop terrace and green roofs, with curved corners activating more pedestrian space

PHASE3 has completed ONE Putney, a scheme in west London which combines residential with ground-floor retail. The Art Deco-inspired design, which is part of a larger redevelopment for a neglected part of Putney High Street, plays with ’interlocking volumes’ to balance the varying scales of the high street and adjacent residential neighbourhood. Accentuated curved corners help emphasise the continuous lines along the high street and perpendicular Montserrat Road, as well as activating more pedestrian space at ground-floor level.

The facade is made up of horizontal precast concrete elements, taking inspiration from the materiality of the surrounding urban infrastructure and reinterpreting Art Deco in a contemporary manner. In an attempt to moderate between the scale of the high street and that of two-storey terraced housing behind the scheme, the massing steps down at the rear.

Architect’s view

Our concept was to create a timeless building that can adapt and evolve with Putney High Street. We were delighted to get such a positive approval for the scheme from the local authority, particularly as it is our first London scheme.
