Reimaging a Redundant Garage Site
Working with a charity client, Gluckman Smith has developed designs for a housing scheme on the site of three disused garages in Clapham. The accommodation will include two, two-bedroom units with gardens, designed over three floors.

Achieving the target of a two-unit scheme on such a compact site without compromising the quality of the internal spaces required an innovative design approach. The proposed rooms are spacious, well-lit and offer a variety of spatial experiences. Externally, the brick facade has been carefully detailed to relate the building to the local surroundings in a sympathetic yet contemporary manner.
