Threefold Architects were appointed by Brick x Brick to create a housing scheme in Crystal Palace comprising of eight 2 bedroom flats for local residents.
The Grove is nestled at the end of a cul-de-sac in Upper Norwood surrounded by post war terraced housing. We have worked closely with the client and planning consultant to maximise the viability and propose nine 2 bedroom flats accessed via a central external core.
The proposal responds to the close proximity of neighbouring properties and windows through carefully positioned openings and perforated brickwork to avoid overlooking and ensure privacy. The massing is articulated in response to the staggered street pattern of neighbouring houses, breaking down the volume and reflecting the existing context.
