David Miller wins planning for Lewisham homes

  • Comment

David Miller Architects has won planning for 17 new council homes in Forest Hill, Lewisham

The £3.4 million scheme will be the first council-owned housing to be built in the south London borough for more than 30 years.

The project, built on under-used garage space within Forest Hill’s Wood Vale estate, includes nine affordable flats and eight homes for private sale.

Anna Davies, project architect, said: ‘We wanted to make sure that the new buildings had a clear relationship with the existing estate and that the new homes made the most of the views into the mature landscape. The duplex, dual aspect design gives each flat the best possible views and we used materials, brick and bronze coloured metal, to complement the existing buildings.’

The development is set to start on site in October and is expected to complete in December 2016.
