Assael Architecture has won planning approval from Lambeth council for this £2.5 million mixed-use scheme. It is located opposite Clapham North Underground Station on a historic site - the first horse and carriage 'taxi stand' in England was located there. An original 19th century brick wall will be retained at street level as the front facade of the scheme. The rest of the building will be constructed from brick except a glass and steel penthouse pavilion. The project will include 200m 2ofoffice space at ground level and 650m 2of housing over four storeys. The housing will include seven one-bedroom and two three-bedroom flats.
There will also be a communal garden at the rear of the property. Work will start on site this week.
