A vibrant neighbourhood at the heart of the new Elephant & Castle development, West Grove is made up of 593 homes in a range of different sizes, set within two tall buildings and a series of mansion blocks that vary in scale from five to 31 storeys.
Designed by Allford Hall Monaghan Morris, a Sterling Prize-shortlisted architectural firm, the new build homes that make up Highwood Gardens fuse diverse historical influences, including the grandeur of the late Victorian and Art Deco periods, with a thoroughly modern approach. Each building has its own character, while retaining a timeless and classic aesthetic.
Meanwhile, the Orchard Gardens buildings designed by Panter Hudspith, who have won the Brick RIBA and Civic Trust Awards for their residential and non-residential projects, are notable for their extraordinary variety and sculptural forms which are brought to life by diverse brickwork and asymmetrical corner balconies.
All buildings within West Grove achieve the high standards set by the Code for Sustainable Homes Level 4, which means they are designed to be resource-efficient and built to last. Their orientations provide good air ventilation and maximise the amount of sunlight the homes capture through their dual aspect, ensuring it is easier to keep your home warm and bright.
