REDEVELOPMENT OF blackheath car park
Mark Doodes Planning managed a tender to purchase scheme for 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.
The site currently provides approximately 163 marked parking bays. The project seeks to add residential houses to the site and has proposed two different options. 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 towards 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 also carefully considered to encourage residents to utilise these open spaces. This approach focuses on residents well-being whilst also improving the biodiversity of the proposed site.
