Accessed from a private tree-lined drive, the site, formerly a KCC Adult Education Centre was purchased for development by Kingston Homes. With a tree preservation order on the whole site, Lee Evans Partnership were commissioned by Kingston Homes to design a number of detached contemporary dwellings that respected the existing mature trees and provided a secluded high quality private development.
The result is a 2015 LABC award winning scheme with 9 individual units with a design language of 6 main house types. With accommodation for 5 bedrooms, every unit benefits from triple height entrance gallery, private drive and garage, accommodation over 3 floors and large open plan living areas and garden rooms. Reflecting the mass and height of the local Edwardian town houses, the dwellings were constructed using a mixture of traditional, new and natural materials.
