Architect: Horden Cherry Lee
Positioned on a newly pedestrianised side street at the entrance to Slade Gardens park is this innovatively designed two-bedroom house by Horden Cherry Lee Architects.
Accommodation measures approximately 660 sq ft over two storeys, with the main open-plan living space on the upper level and the bedrooms, and bathroom, at ground level. The upstairs living space is wonderfully light, with full-height windows flanking two sides and a large roof light. Sliding doors at one end open to a Juliet balcony that looks directly onto the wide open spaces of Slade Gardens, a peaceful and recently developed public park.
The two bedrooms on the ground floor both have built-in wardrobes. An engineered oak floor, with underfloor heating, runs throughout.
The contemporary design has a distinctive perforated aluminium façade on the south side, made up of machine-cut vertical screens decorated with an open leaf pattern that shield the interiors from the street whilst letting in lots of natural light. There are solar PV cells located on the roof to reduce electrical costs for the occupant.
The vibrancy of Brixton’s eating out scene is well documented, with the Village, Market Row and Acre Lane all being celebrated destinations, as well as the recently opened Pop Brixton. There is a regular farmers market in Brixton and at Oval. Windrush Square is home to The Ritzy, a popular Picture House cinema. Brockwell Park and the beautiful Art Deco Lido are within walking distance.
Transport links are very good with numerous buses into central London running along Brixton Road, and Stockwell and Brixton both have Underground stations.
