Vacant office building to make way for residential homes in prime Putney location
A2Dominion has been granted planning consent by the London Borough of Wandsworth to develop Carlton House, a vacant 1960s office building comprising seven-storeys in Putney, south west London.
The residential-led, mixed-use scheme will be designed by Assael Architecture, bringing 73 new apartments and four commercial units to Putney town centre as well as introducing a ‘gateway’ into Carlton Drive and the residential areas beyond.
John Assael, Chairman of Assael Architecture, said: “This scheme has evolved over two years following detailed consultation with many stakeholders.
“It is a bold design to provide a gateway at the junction of Carlton Drive and the South Circular Road.
“We have adopted high-quality materials and a comprehensive strategy to sustainability and this incorporates a south elevation with solar panels integrated into the design.”
Danny Lynch, A2Dominion’s Development Director (London), said: “The redevelopment of this important site will deliver dozens of much-needed new homes within a new landmark building in the heart of Putney.
“This scheme supports the Group’s strategy to continue to diversify its portfolio, with the new homes for sale, private rent and shared ownership to be available through our FABRICA by A2Dominion brand.”
A large amenity space at fourth floor roof level will include a children’s play area and there will be a double-height concierge along Carlton Drive.
Ground floor commercial units and an enhanced public area will provide an attractive frontage to the scheme.
The new building has been designed to be sympathetic to the surrounding urban environment with a palette of materials chosen to respect the existing character of the nearby Upper Richmond Road.
