BXB are proud to announce planning has been granted for our stunning Lion Green Road development in Coulsdon. The residential led scheme will deliver 157 dwellings as part of our ambitious strategy to deliver much needed new and affordable homes across the borough. We submitted a full planning application in December 2017 for this development of five sculpted ‘pavilions’ set within a verdant landscape. The scheme is designed by Mary Duggan Architects.
Driven by a ‘landscape first’ approach, the scheme has been composed in response to the sloping topography of the site, with each one of the pavilions carefully placed to manage the proximity between residents and to offer the benefit of an expansive outlook over the surrounding landscape.
The plan arrangement of the buildings is intended to maximise efficiency whilst generating spatially dynamic internal unit layouts. Interconnected living and kitchen spaces are arranged around generous corner loggias set amongst a canopy of trees. The experience of continually re-engaging with the landscape from within each unit has been an important ambition of the project.
The project will shortly enter a period of detailed design with construction anticipated to commence before the end of 2018.
