Angell Town Phase 1

Brixton, London

Angell Town Phase 1

Description

78 dwelling units, mostly 3 storey, with a few of 2 storeys, are constructed in buff brick, with metal deck roofing, steel balconies, external boarding designed to silver with age, and wood flooring inside.

Covering 9,700m2 and offering high density (355 bed spaces per hectare), the scheme forms part of a wider re-development of the Angell Town Estate, near to adjacent shops (within 80m), support and community buildings developed as a part of a previous phase, and other local amenities in Brixton Road and Brixton town centre nearby. Little Angell's Square (3,900m2), (re-designed to integrate with the new housing according to residents' detailed requirements), and a ball court (2,113m2) comprise public open space adjoining the scheme and making a significant and accessible amenity contribution.

The scheme includes mews entrances and one car space per unit, arranged in small walled courts at the fronts of buildings. Cycle parking is not available, but most units have storage room inside or easy access to back gardens.
