REDEVELOPMENT OF blackheath car park
In 2018 MDP were instructed to prepare a tender to purchase a car park opposite the train station in Blackheath, London. The car park is located just off the High Street with close proximity to independent and high street retailers, cafes and pubs. Unfortunatly, on this occasion our client was not sucessful in securing the site but this webpage showcases how our vision for the site would have looked had this not been the case.
The site currently provides approximately 163 marked parking bays. The project sought to redevelop the site with a residential led scheme and two design options were presented to Network Rail's agents. Option A is a terrace of family townhouses with gardens, while Option B features blocks of low rise flats with shared amenity space.
The aspiration of the scheme, in terms of architectural language, is to transpire a respectful approach by introducing traditional materials, with contemporary interpretations, especially given that the proposed site sits in a conservation area. The colour and texture palette would reflect a modest but sleek articulation to ensure a high quality residential
development that does not alienate itself from the surrounding fabric.
The open spaces of the proposed development are carefully considered to encourage residents to utilise and enjoy them. This approach focuses on residents well-being whilst also improving the biodiversity of the proposed site.
