Re-defining a forgotten site to create four apartments.
8 William Street is a highly constrained site which is landlocked on 3 sides by retail and residential properties. The site previously accommodated a light industrial unit which in recent years has become disused. The vision for the project is to demolish the existing low quality ‘shed’ and replace it with a contemporary and high quality design that accommodates four one bed flats within a two storey building. The development also enhancements the surrounding shared landscape, access drive and parking.
The ‘H-shaped’ plan orientates the rooms and windows to predominantly face south to minimise overlooking between the development and neighbouring buildings. The plan form also creates the opportunity for both first floor flats to have a private recessed balcony.
The redevelopment of 8 William Street is in accordance with the London Borough of Sutton’s aspirations and ambitions for the regeneration of the site and surrounding area.
