Shuttleworth Road New Build Development
Shuttleworth Road provides 71 affordable homes in a development ranging from three- to seven- storeys in within the heart of Wandsworth.
Location: Battersea, London
Client: Wates Residential / The London Borough of Wandsworth
Project Value: £31m
Specialisation: New build low energy homes
Set on a site consisting of redundant units, garages and low quality commercial buildings, the development of Shuttleworth Road rejuvenates the area and contributes positively to the public realm with permeable routes which connect new and existing residents to the adjacent Battersea High Street, local amenities and transport links.
We were appointed to Shuttleworth Road alongside Wates Residential, the D&B contractor when the previous architectural practice had gone in to administration. Upon appointment we therefore took the project through a due diligence review process within a short time frame which included the reworking of internal layouts to ensure full, local authority and planning requirements.
Although the project has had to overcome a number of evolving challenges, including adapting to changing fire building regulations whilst progressing on site, our development of the scheme has maintained its original concept of augmenting the existing surrounding street frontages.
Creatively reworking the development, we ensured the scheme achieved its 71-home requirement in a mix of 2, 3 and 4-bedroom apartment and maisonette homes, and maintained its design for accessible roof terraces, play area and wider site enhancements.
