Park Heights is the signature building in Network Homes’ ongoing transformation of the Stockwell Park Estate, located between Stockwell and Brixton town centres. The high-quality, tenure-blind development, designed by PRP, creates a new landmark for Stockwell, offering breath-taking views across London.
The exemplar scheme replaces an outdated and poorly maintained 1960s building, Wayland House. Offering an improved mix of tenure, the high-rise development utilises a durable material palette, referencing both the neighbouring conservation area, as well as newer buildings in its surroundings, to create an asset for the estate and wider neighbourhood.
Boasting a dramatic, double-height entrance for all residents to use - regardless of tenure - and communal roof terraces, the design emulates high-end Central London living whilst providing a much needed mix of housing for the local area.
This exciting project features reconstituted stone cladding and curtain walling systems at the tower base and aluminium composite systems above. Vertical aluminium fins provide solar shading and architectural interest to the long linear balconies. The roof top gardens are framed by sky beams and protected glazed windshields.
Both the Planning and Technical design were completed using BIM with the architectural and engineering teams collaborating in 3D. 3D views played a key role in the façade design, including cladding option studies, panelisation and detail coordination with the supply chain.
