Clarence Lane, Roehampton
The development at Clarence Lane sits on former dilapidated tennis courts that lay vacant for many years. and is flanked by a tall brick wall and wooded overgrown landscape to the south.
Our scheme consists of 20 new apartments set within the Alton conservation area in Roehampton, London.
The site surrounded Downshire House, a 1770 Grade II* Listed building, however the land was purchased separately by our client over 10 years prior to the planning application. The area was overgrown and it had been disused for many years and contained a number of Tree Preservation Orders.
Our design consists of two new buildings. The first a three storey high building with 10 private apartments with a mix of apartments and maisonettes. The second sits taller at four storeys with 10 affordable apartments, built in accordance with the Metropolitan Housing Trust’s brief, which is for people with learning disabilities. It accommodates one bedroom apartments, a disabled unit and an office for a carer support unit.
