bptw’s design proposal for Bond House in New Cross has been awarded planning permission by Lewisham Council. The mixed-use development is situated on the site of a former cash and carry at the junction of Batavia and Goodwood Road and will include 89 homes in a mix of apartments and maisonettes, as well as 862sqm of commercial space made up of a mix of artist studios and a gallery.
The design is based around a central courtyard that will display artwork and provide a visual amenity for residents in the apartments above. A public gallery area and street fronted studios will enable work to be showcased and viewed both from within the studios which occupy the first two levels, and through the glazing at street level.
To reflect the local historic context, London stock buff brick is being utilised as the primary material with brick feature panels and deep window reveals. The brick is further offset by timber reveals to the balconies whilst the commercial space is detailed with smooth concrete edging and bronze coloured louvres.
bptw acted as architects and planning consultants on behalf of private clients D and DW Ovenell.
