Ravensbourne House is a Victorian property situated in Keston, within the London Borough of Bromley. Drawing on the heritage of the site and its surroundings, the aspiration is to convert the house back to its former residential use, whilst creating luxury accommodation in mature grounds for the retirement market.
PDP London has gained consent for the change of use to provide a total of 7 apartments with shared facilities as well as access to the mature landscaped grounds. The internal layout is be reconfigured and provides a series of lateral, duplex, and triplex units with a central communal core. This includes residential access to the existing tower and the enhancement of the connectivity to the gardens by way of new residential terraces and has two contemporary flint and masonry extensions.
Within the mature grounds, a new development of 4 terraced 2-3 bedroom houses are proposed, each with private underground parking and rear gardens. Drawing on the local vernacular and architecture of the existing main house, the design of the new build scheme uses traditional forms and materials in a contemporary manner in order to fit seamlessly into the existing site context.
