ArchitecturePLB has achieved planning permission for the London Borough of Sutton for 20 Passivhaus residential units across two sites at Woodcote Road and Beddington Lane. The scheme provides 1, 2 and 3-bedroom local authority homes for Sutton residents.
The project responds to the London Borough of Sutton’s climate emergency declaration and the current energy crisis, creating low-carbon, certified Passivhaus housing. Through their high thermal performance, efficient mechanical systems and photovoltaic electrical energy generation, the new homes will significantly lower occupants’ energy consumption and costs.
At Beddington Lane, new terraced houses will enhance the existing street pattern of the surrounding conservation area. The 4-storey apartment building at Woodcote Road is also designed to complement the existing context, working within a confined site to provide 11 homes and a rear communal garden.
