Hampton Wick's 'Hansel and Gretel' house to be replaced by larch-clad apartments - images

  • Comment
Architect Richard Pain has just submitted plans for this seven-apartment scheme in a conservation area in Hampton Wick, south-west London.

Clad in larch, the 534m 2building will replace a 'Hansel and Gretel'-style house which was built on the site in 1928.

The front of the new block will be patterned with 'small ellipses', while the side of the building will boast a 'larger' pattern which will be routed into the timber.

According to Pain, the design responds both to the 'horizontality' of the orange-brick 1960s block of flats next door and the detailing of the former church hall on the other side.

The two apartments on the ground floor will be single-bedroom units aimed at wheelchair users; the remaining flats will be two-bedroom homes.

A full timescale and budget for the project are not yet known.
