Erpingham Road2010 - Current
The site is located on Erpingham Road in the Putney area. It is a mid terrace, late Victorian house situated on the west side of Erpingham Road, flanked on the north side by Lower Richmond Road, a main thoroughfare, and on the south by Felsham Road, a street of a more local character. On the west at more than 30 metres away is a school flanked with high perimeter walls and on the east is the other side of Erpingham Road terraces.
Built in the late 1800's, West Putney was developed before East Putney leaving no available lots to build other building typologies. While the lack of variation between houses (in number, mass, height and width) adds to the character of the area, a number of terraced houses on the west side of Erpingham Road have been further developed.
The surrounding area is predominantly residential in character and the current proposal does not seek to change this. It is hoped that by extending the existing dwelling with a carefully considered terrace, of an appropriate scale and with an architectural language which reflects its use, the residential character of the local area will be enhanced.
