We are creating 26 new homes in Kingston. 21 of these units are for Pocket Living 'City makers', London professionals aiming to purchase an affordable first home, and 5 units are larger two-bedroom flats. The building, on the site of a former car park on the corner of Cowleaze Road and Elm Grove, creates a robust and attractive frontage to maximise the potential of this gap. The layout of floors 1, 2 and 3 is similar with each dwelling accessed from an open stair and communal balcony, while the ground floor incorporates four flats and generous space for bike storage. Other features include a large communal roof terrace at fourth floor and photovoltaic panels. A red multi-stock brick facade with precast concrete banding has been designed in keeping with the surrounding postwar architecture.
