Fletcher Crane Architects have successfully gained planning permission for a new build, five bedroom family home on the banks of the river Thames in Kingston Upon Thames.

This contemporary proposal echoes the urban scenography with a clear vertical element to the design. A plinth like brick ground floor anchors the proposal and creates a wrap around courtyard in the rear garden capturing the morning sun. Within the towered element key living spaces gain views to the river whilst the master bedroom will benefit from panoramic views toward Teddington.

An extruded central section echoes the height and verticality of neighbouring properties. Living spaces on these upper levels enjoy far reaching views across the river. A considered entrance sequence from street level leads visitors through the main living spaces with views into an enclosed central courtyard. Bedrooms and living accommodation above look over the green meadow roof.

The ground floor element is constructed of a long horizontal red brick matching that of the adjoining neighbours. The tall central box is clad in a carefully composed series of perforated timber panels. The front facing glazing system runs from ground level to the roof line.
