"Kitto Road Sustainable Homes"

Another bit of housing infill for Brockley. Building Design showcases a planned development on Kitto and Gellatly Roads. They say:

31/44 Architects — a young practice based in Amsterdam and London — is designing two sustainable houses on a former bomb-site in south-east London.

The corner site, recently occupied by dilapidated garages, is on the edge of a conservation area in Brockley. A corner house will finish off the terrace on Gellatly Road and, to the rear on Kitto Road, a lower house has two courtyards. Both are striving to achieve the Association for Environment Conscious Building (AECB) Silver Standard for low-energy homes.

This is really quite ugly.

Another bunker for Brockley.

I like some of the internal aspects, but I'm not a huge fan of the facade or the roof elevation, I would have preferred some sort of pitch, that could wrapped the building around the corner. Maybe...

Nice to see lattice brickwork making a comeback, makes it look a bit like the flats on the end of Adelaide Av. Other than that, it's fairly ugly.

While we're on the topic, have you seen these four houses to go on the old stables? http://planning.lewisham.gov.uk/online-applications/applicationDetails.do?activeTab=summary&keyVal=_LEWIS_DCAPR_71387
They look nice, but they're very close to the railway line and (speaking as someone who lives nearby) the freight trains that rumble past at 2am are very loud!

If you google that, the top link is now this (BC) article…

Thank you for sharing this wonderful information.

It doesn't "complete the formal Victorian terrace" - if you want to see how to do that look at the new builds on Arbuthnot Road (either side) by the junction with Jerningham.
By the bend where Drakefell turns into Gellatly, it is a key site on the B2142 district distributor road and regrettably downright ugly. However eco they are, trying to cram two units into what was space for one is just the developers being greedy.
They also can't even get the address right. Not Kitto Road that side of the B2142, but Gibbon Road and it's New Cross not Brockley - but then, of course, that does not sound so posh for potential purchasers.

Those Victorian replica buildings on Arbuthnot are amazing! They are precise copies of the originals and complete the terraces perfectly. It's very difficult to tell that they are not actual Victorian buildings.

Headhunter said...

They also have no clue about architectural history. The article on bdonline says


"As it turns the corner, the side gable remains square with punched openings that reflect the Georgian gable at the opposite end of the street."...


Georgian??! GEORGIAN! The nearest Georgian buildings to that street are on Old Kent Road or over in Greenwich. All the buildings there are very obviously Victorian, absolutely no mistaking it. Not very good for an architectural publication....

I wouldn't mind living in a home like this one. My best friend is studying to become an architectural engineer. I think that this is the sort of house that he is looking into designing and building for himself.
