Sienna House

Location London

Client Watkin Jones

Sector Residential

Status Complete

Area 165 units

A new residential development totalling 165 units on Sutton Court Road, South London. Totalling 165 units, the lower ten floors will contain ten apartments per floor and the upper, seven per floor. The tenth floor boasts a roof terrace and resident’s facilities. 

The site’s proximity to the London Victoria to Gatwick provides fantastic public transport connections, but it also presents a unique set of challenges for construction. Working together with the Watkin Jones Built to Rent team, Brock Carmichael has developed an offsite manufactured, sophisticated facade design that overcomes these issues. 

This approach streamlines the construction process, minimises the potential for construction defects, improves build quality and reduces health and safety risk.

The building is highly efficient, wrapping a mix of apartments around a central core. The main elevation features a dynamic alternating balcony design, adding privacy and providing an appropriate architectural response to this urban location. The entrance will feature concierge facilities and a management suite at ground level. Car parking is at lower ground level with space for bicycle storage. 

Brock Carmichael’s Managing Partner, Chris Bolland “Floor plans were designed with extensive thought on flexibility and the intelligent use of the space available. We have worked on a number of BtR schemes and brought this experience together with Watkin Jones’ team’s in-depth construction expertise to employ the latest building and construction methods to ensure a successful project. It was great to work with such an innovative and visionary organisation. Sienna House is in prime commuter belt and it is already proving to be a very desirable address.”
