Lipton Plant Architects has been awarded planning permission for seven new build apartments in Bromley. The proposal replaces an existing bungalow with 7 new homes aimed at first time buyers.

Every aspect of the architectural design is driven by narrative reflecting its locality; a fusion of the local vernacular, local geology and local history both ancient and modern.

The overall form is representative of the immediate vernacular, with contemporary architectural details. An inverted ‘moat’ in the form of a grassy mound provides shelter from the busy streets, planted with wild grasses from the country park.

We have designed a modern interpretation of the pair of houses that were originally intended to occupy the site, modest yet high quality, complementing its context.

We have secured an excellent planning permission, this is one of very few sites where the planning committee has supported car free development.
