Evening Standard Award winning scheme for a large scale mixed tenure development.
We were the lead consultant within a multidisciplinary design team involved in the design and construction of new build and refurbished flats at Seren Park.
The site originally received planning approval in 2002 for one hundred and fifty three units. We were asked to improve upon the granted approval; we extended the planning permission to two hundred and eighty one units for private sale, affordable rental and shared ownership.
The existing and new build blocks are visually tied together through the timber cladding with steel–framed timber and glass fronted balconies. A steel structure sits in front of the principal facades of the new build and existing building adding a further level of ’layering’. Balconies are inserted at a variety of depths and configurations without the need to build steelwork into the concrete structure and therefore improving the thermal performance of the building.
