A run-down car park is being converted into flats in south London 

A six storey housing development for a run-down car park at the junction of Milner Road and Morden Road, South Wimbledon has recently been granted planning permission.

Located approximately 1.2km to the southeast of Wimbledon Town Centre and less than a minutes’ walk of South Wimbledon Station, this residentially led development will comprise of fifteen apartments, three townhouses and a commercial unit at street level.

Constructed using CLT (Cross Laminated Timber) the design had to incorporate lightweight construction materials due to a London Underground tunnel located directly under the site.

The development will have a distinctive and elegant profile on its prominent corner position, when approaching from Kingston Road and Morden Road junction and from afar, improving the urban setting of the area by complementing the existing urban grain and setting of the Grade II listed South Wimbledon Underground Station that is located nearby.

The high quality buildings have been designed to respond to the surroundings; to enhance and to sustain and to improve the character and setting of the area, to complement but not necessarily replicate the local architecture character.

All apartments and houses will have outdoor spaces in the form of balconies, terraces or winter gardens and the buildings use a simple palette of materials composed of glazed terracotta and timber cladding to interiors.

Construction is due to start on site end of January 2016 with completion due by mid-2017.
