plans for kidderpore avenue approved
14 July 2016
Kidderpore Avenue has received detailed planning consent, a hugely positive outcome for our clients, Mount Anvil.
As part of a strong design team lead by Scott Brownrigg, both in relation to historic refurbishment and contemporary new build, a number of heritage assets have been safeguarded in the leafy surrounds of Hampstead. The former college takes its name from the Grade II listed Kidderpore Hall which was built in 1843. It has been part of the King’s College London portfolio since September 1992.
The proposals see the sensitive conversion that will secure the future of the historic listed buildings, while the additional elements, new built form and the high quality series of courtyard gardens, will breathe new life into the site which will be vacated in September 2015.
The gardens are focused around three interlinked courtyards gardens. They include a central formal garden, reflective of the historic gardens of the early 19th century, (all of this is to be constructed above a newly constructed basement), an eastern collegiate garden, reflective of the more recent history and an ecologically inspired western garden where the exiting tree cover and steeper topography have informed a more biodiverse outcome. The historic summerhouse is to be translocated into the latter space and to be used as part of an educational resource for the local community.
fabrik have consequently been appointed to prepare the working drawings and to be involved with the delivery of this exciting project.
