Avanti’s proposals for Canonbie Road form part of a programme of specialist housing provision led by Lewisham Council, including Mayow Road. Canonbie Road comprises 6 council homes for families requiring temporary accommodation. Lewisham’s vision is that these council homes should set a new benchmark for quality, providing safe and secure housing for families for up to two years.
Our proposals for this small site deliver dual aspect family units in two wings that step with the sloping site. Each home has generous private amenity space and access to a generous shared tree-lined garden. The massing approach and detailing draw on traditions of Victorian and art-and-crafts architecture found in the wider Forest Hill area, with textured brickwork and articulated gables.
