Located on the site of the old mission hall, Brompton Villas will be one of many significant new developments occurring in the area as part of the wider Earl’s Court masterplan.
Dexter Moren Associates’ proposal will see the existing mock Victorian semi detached houses on the corner of Lillie Road and Ongar Road
demolished and the construction of a new building comprising 12 residential units across four to five floors.
Typical Victorian flat-fronted terraced properties featuring simple brick, stucco and render detailing, straight roof parapets and a hierarchy of window sizes are common-place in the existing neighbourhood and have formed the basis of the design inspiration for the contemporary
Brompton Villas development. The primary building volume is proposed to be brickwork to complement the local character, whilst a corner secondary volume will feature stone cladding. Grey, rustic brickwork with exposed white concrete frames will act to contrast the strong colour
of the masonry walls, and for added privacy steel and glass panels will screen outlook onto exterior timber decks. The proposed scheme is sensitively integrated into the existing and emerging built form, both in terms of scale and architectural language.
