As part of a series of articles showcasing examples of projects that The Design Review Panel has reviewed over the last 12 months we are please to share Prospect House in Bromley.
Situated in a Bromley town centre, the project has been designed by Goldstein Heather Architects, and is for the replacement of an existing office building, with an Art Deco inspired office and residences. The architect’s website states:
“A harmonious colonnade creates a sense of civic generosity and an open face to the local streetscape, where the existing buildings are defensive and introverted. The residential element above echoes the architectural gesture of the stepping colonnade, but the use of lighter brick, precast bands and elegant balconies underscore the different use. To the rear of the building, residents will also benefit from landscaped gardens and play space for their children, while, higher up from their balconies, they will have sweeping views beyond London to the Kent countryside.”
The proposals were for the demolition of an existing building and the erection of a 10 storey building (plus basement) to provide 1,759sqm office floor space Use Class Order Class E(g)(i) on the ground floor and first floor with 61 residential flats (9 studio, 38 x 1
bed and 14 x 2 bed) above and provision of 11 parking spaces.
