A rich mix of private and shared amenity spaces are provided across the project. This includes upgraded green spaces within the public realm, shared residential courts and generous private balconies for all new homes. New balconies have been carefully located to create a strong relationship with proposed living spaces. Park facing homes benefit from full-width, south facing balconies taking advantage of long views from the site.
A team including Karakusevic Carson Architects, Henley Halebrown Architects, Stephen Taylor Architects and Townshend Landscape Architects were appointed in March 2015 to prepare a masterplan and detailed proposals for the estate. Over a period of almost 2 years the design team met regularly with the nightingale residents in the development of the proposals culminating in the submission of a planning application in July 2016. Planning Approval was granted in January 2017.
