Located just south of the Thames Boat Race finish line in Richmond, Gibberd were appointed to convert a four storey office building into a 16 apartment residential block. A 20 minute walk from the Royal Botanical Gardens at Kew, the redevelopment which is currently under construction, will provide private dwellings for the rental market. The new flats are situated with excellent transport links to Central London through Mortlake and North Sheen stations, putting its residents 30 minutes from Waterloo by train. These links make the development perfect for those who work in the city, but also enjoy living within a close proximity to parks such as Kew Gardens and Richmond Park.
The old office building, with a total floor area of around 1,200 square metres over the four storeys, is being converted into 5 one bedroom, and 11 two bedroom apartments. All circulation is communal and situated towards the centre of the building, providing access to each floor through two lift shafts and a staircase. This allows for maximum natural lighting to penetrate each flat, with large windows into the living and bedroom spaces of each apartment.
