Heathside, West Heath Road
Location: West Heath Road, London
Client: Private Developer
Architect: Wolff Architects
Size: 0.4 Hectares
Status: In Planning
The site is located on the north-east side of West Heath Road at the corner of Eden Close and comprises a largely rectangular shaped parcel of land, of approximately 0.4 hectares.
The architectural scheme proposes the construction of a new building of 7 storeys (5 above ground) to accommodate residential accommodation comprising of 45 apartments (3 x 1 bed; 39 x 2 bed; 3 x 3 bed) with basement car parking, associated communal areas, amenity space and private garden areas at ground floor level.
In general, the landscaping is important for its contribution to the quality of urban life by providing important green lungs, visual breaks and wildlife habitats in this built-up area.
The Design Approach: Rhythm
The conceptual approach is inspired by rhythmic composition of the architecture. A strong, bold, staggered and repetitive pattern of movement used to accentuate the angular nature of the building whilst neutralizing others. Helping to divide and define spaces through pathways, planting, lawn and sculptural benches as well as serving as an overarching holistic design language to unify the site in a single harmonious composition.
Specific emphasis has been made on providing an environment that promotes social interaction with a balance of both private and communal space that are in harmony with the surrounding natural context.
