Geoffrey Road housebuilding begins

The Architects' Journal reports that work to build new apartment blocks on Geoffrey Road has begun. The site has been dormant for years, but the homes are now due for completion by January 2013. AJ says:

The 625m², competition-winning scheme features five single-storey, pavilion-like apartments sat behind a pair of four-storey, timber framed apartment blocks. According to [architecture practice] Groves Natcheva's co-founder Murray Groves all the units have their own private amenity space with the ‘the pedestrian street bringing a more communal feel - the idea of the mews.’

We really like the look of these, which are better architecture than Brockley has been used to in recent years and it's nice to see derelict sites being filled in with new homes at long last.
