King's Road housing scheme 'sensitive to conservation'

  • Comment

A housing scheme blending new-build with converted listed buildings and landscaped gardens went to the planners last week.

Paskin Kyriakides Sands' revised scheme for London's King's Road is sensitive to the conservation area, unlike the existing permission granted in 1996, and has gardens as a key feature, said architect Selwyn Lowe.

The scheme for 309 flats will involve converting a seventeenth-century Grade II-listed house, and refurbishing the listed 1843 Octagon by Edward Blore into a family house. An 1859 building, based on a Blore design, will be divided into 14 homes and its courtyard made into an Italianate garden courtyard.

Most of the new brick buildings on the 3ha site will face the gardens and existing trees and will spiral out from the historic core, which also includes old board schools. The project is run by Kings College, London and a pfi partner European Land & Property Corporation.
