The massing is formed of two 10-storey buildings flanking a raised landscaped podium at first floor level and two smaller terraces of family housing, ensuring a continuation of the “book end” theme established on the adjacent plots.

The raised podium contains car parking and secure cycle storage underneath, and is landscaped with private and communal gardens which provide views through to the mature trees of an adjacent park.

Between the two 10 storey buildings there are two terraces of family housing, facing east (onto Chandlers Avenue) and west (onto East Parkside) respectively. Biodiverse roofs and terraces provide an enhanced outlook from upper levels.

As part of a wider masterplan, generous living spaces are positioned in response to their parkside setting to establish a new and diverse community and a landscaped public realm.

A strong emphasis is placed on creating a building with simple but durable detailing that will resonate with the historic craft tradition of its location.
