Building Visit: ONE Putney
Date: Friday 25 October 2019
Venue: Putney High Street
This event was originally on 10 October and has been postponed to 25 October.
Join us for a tour of the recently completed ONE Putney with Tyen Masten, former AA Academic Staff, current AA Member and founder of PHASE3.
Building description provided by PHASE3:
ONE Putney aims to transform a neglected stretch of Putney town centre while establishing a new dialogue for future developments along this main thoroughfare. Simultaneously, mitigating the scale of the high street and the adjacent neighbourhood required a thoughtful response in order to create a well-proportioned and well-crafted building for the future.
The six-storey BREEAM Excellent building includes 15 residential apartments, a shared rooftop terrace and green roofs. The design plays with interlocking volumes, reinterpreting the original structure in a new way. Curved corners emphasise the continuous lines along the high street and Montserrat Road, activating more pedestrian space. Horizontal and vertical elements are formed from precast concrete, echoing townscape materials. Carefully respecting scale and the relationship between the high street and bordering residential road, the mixed-use development establishes a strong identity and active retail frontage, with the rear elevation stepping down to reflect the height of two-storey terraced housing behind.
Please meet at 12:55pm at the entrance to ONE Putney, 89-95 Putney High Street, SW15 1SR. The tour will last for approximately 1 hour.
