Rodić Davidson Architects, acting for developer Capus Land LLP, have submitted a planning application for a contemporary new-build apartment scheme in a conservation area in the heart of Kensington.

The proposal seeks to create five apartments on a complex site within a rich historic context. The scheme takes key references from neighbouring properties; developing the existing rhythm of the street elevation, whilst providing a modern understanding of the surrounding Arts and Crafts heritage.

The design responds to the deep site which is enclosed by neighbouring properties and gardens. To protect neighbours’ views and sense of privacy, the proposed apartments are inward facing and arranged around generous courtyards. These courtyards further provide the scheme with an abundance of natural light and amenity space.
