PRP has revealed its latest plans for Clapham Park in south London, which will see the development of 120 new homes.
The development, which includes 54 affordable homes and 64 private sale units, will incorporate a combined heat and power plant. This will provide heat and power to more than 70 per cent of the new homes.
The project, entitled C2, represents the fifth residential development within the Clapham Park. It follows the approval of B5, also designed by PRP, which comprises 85 affordable homes for rent and is due for completion this May.
All the houses have been designed to meet ‘Lifetime Homes’ standards, and will achieve Level 4 of the Code of Sustainable Homes following the full implementation of the CHP system.
The designs will maximise park views and reinforce the urban street character. The crescent-shaped profile will incorporate three breaks within the building façade, which will maximise the amount of light reaching the courtyard.
Richard Harvey, C2’s project leader and principal architect on the Clapham Park Homes design code and block B5, said: “The C2 proposal significantly contributes to the community it will serve by providing spacious homes that respond to their location and orientation.
“Much consideration has been given to the streetscape, landscape design and courtyard access. The development will contribute to the transformation of Clapham Park and deliver quality housing for the area”.
The overall regeneration masterplan for Clapham Park will see the regeneration of 61.4 hectares on a site between Brixton, Streatham, Balham and Clapham in the London Borough of Lambeth. New community, educational and commercial facilities will be provided around a high-quality park.
