New London Architecture

Hydethorpe Road

Planning Granted

Part of HFL’s small sites programme, the brownfield site on Hydethorpe Road will be developed to provide 14 high quality, sustainable homes (50% affordable) in a new 4 and 5 storey building.

Homes for Lambeth (HFL) is a house-building company, set up and wholly owned by Lambeth Council, to build and manage homes for local people on council land. Part of HFL’s small sites programme, a brownfield site on Hydethorpe Road will be developed to provide 14 homes (50% affordable) with new trees and landscaping. Energy efficient design, air source heat pumps and solar panels, together with water and waste reduction measures and ecological enhancements, make this a high quality, sustainable scheme.

Zero Carbon London

Zero Carbon London

→ Targeting 71.9% reduction in Regulated CO2 emissions over Part L 2013
→ Circular economy principles
→ Sustainable Drainage Systems, biodiverse roofs
→ Car free development

Hydethorpe Road will not only meet Lambeth’s high environmental and energy standards for new homes, but will go beyond. Energy efficient design through a fabric first approach, air source heat pumps in each dwelling, and photovoltaic panels will contribute to a significant reduction in operational carbon emissions. A Whole Life Cycle Carbon Assessment will be carried out at each RIBA stage, and circular economy principles will be embedded. Where practical, new building materials will be sourced locally. The site will benefit from Sustainable Drainage Systems, including biodiverse roofs and permeable paving. The development will be car free (except for one wheelchair accessible bay) and encourages sustainable modes of transport with the provision of secure cycle parking for all residents.
