Two houses located on Lower Addiscombe Road, Croydon we designed and obtained planning permission for are nearing completion.

The unusual back-lands site dated back to the 19th Century when an out-building was constructed for a large lodge. Following demolition of the lodge the surrounding land was developed with new residential houses leaving it isolated in a back lands area surrounded by gardens.

The complex context, also located within the East India Conservation Area, required skillful negotiations with the London Borough of Croydon who granted planning and conservation area consent in 2012.

The design creates new basement accommodation for the pair of mirrored town houses along with living space at ground floor and bedrooms above. A combination of setback windows and screening avoids overlooking to the neighbouring gardens.

Developer CCL Architecture have customised the internal fit-out to their own specification and are hoping to market the properties shortly.
