Palfrey Place Residential Development – South London
Lambeth, South London
Bowman Riley prepared the detailed designs on Palfrey Place, four new build high-quality maisonettes in the St Marks conservation area, part of the Oval neighbourhood in the London Borough of Lambeth.
An expanse of glazing provides a contemporary edge to the traditional brickwork ensuring that it sits well within the character of the conservation area, which is predominantly two and three-storey residential buildings.
The extensive glazing and roof lights create stunning light-filled open-plan maisonettes with large windows that frame views over the skyline.
The layout of the interiors was carefully considered to maximise the quality of space and amenity.
The building features internal covered courtyards, balcony space within the walls of the building and a glazed roof winter garden to the rear.
The development was designed to be as energy-efficient as possible. It achieved Code for Sustainable Homes level 4. Sustainable features include the following energy-saving measures: improved u-values, efficient heating, hot water and lighting systems and photovoltaic panels to meet a 20% reduction of carbon emissions from on-site renewable energy generation.
