Infill Development | Architects for Lambeth | Clapham, South West London
forresterarchitects have submitted a planning application for a new build infill house in Clapham, South London. Currently configured an an unremarkable bookend property there is an opportunity to provide a new two-storey infill development. The pressure to build houses in London has resulted in the search for more obscure plots of land with potential to be developed. The infill development offers property developers the opportunity to take advantage of residual or inefficient land uses.
The infill house development is arranged with the living accommodation on the upper floors. The bedrooms are located on the ground floor which provides perhaps an unconventional house arrangement. The upper floor rooms however benefit from a double height lounge which provides a bright and airy room with a fine south facing aspect. The ground floor provides two double bedrooms with a ground floor accessible WC. For a infill house development current planning policy has strict requirements for adequate amenity (garden) space. As with any tight infill urban plot amenity space is provided in the form of a terraced garden which is accessed from the lounge space to the rear.
