Clyde Terrace, South East London
Clyde Terrace is a forward thinking scheme situated within a conservation area in Forest Hill, LB Lewisham. Transforming a vacant industrial building into an award winning mixed use development, the scheme is ideally located for transport links, with the creation of a new route connecting to the High Street and neighbouring railway station.
With a façade fronting onto a railway line, the acoustic properties of the building were carefully considered with the incorporation of sunspaces to act as a buffer for unwanted noise. Clyde Terrace comprises 52 new apartments of which 10 are live-work units. 7 ground-floor commercial units provide flexible options for local businesses. The scheme was recognised with a CABE Building for Life Gold Award, achieving one of the highest scores recorded:
“A sensitive infill scheme which packs a punch through its street frontage. Interesting how one clever intervention can improve the feel of an entire neighbourhood" - CABE 'Raising the standard of housing design'
