RIBA award-winning architects get green light for new Burbage Road home

Southwark Council has granted planning permission for 400sqm new family home on Burbage Road in Dulwich, designed by Burgess Architects for The Dulwich Estate. The contemporary home takes its cue from its Arts and Crafts style neighbours and revitalises a former brown-field site, currently occupied by lock-up garages and a disused access track - leaving a significant gap in one of the most important streets in the heart of leafy Dulwich.

RIBA award-winners Burgess Architects have developed an approach to the design which is both contemporary, but presents a facade that is closely in keeping with the style of the neighbouring buildings

Adrian Brace, director of property at The Dulwich Estate said: ‘The Dulwich Estate is committed to creating an outstanding living environment – respecting the past while creating places relevant to today. This exciting development is a great example of how high quality design can enhance the area. It takes account of environmental impacts and retains important architectural elements and trees that are unique to the houses and their history.

Improvements to Dulwich Village shops

Renovation works have started to 86 and 88 Dulwich Village (formerly McColl’s Newsagents and Shepherds Food). This is part of ongoing investment in the area and will improve the properties for both commercial tenants and customers. The work will finish in late spring and we hope to be able to confirm a new convenience store tenant by then. Refurbishment and renovation of 33 Dulwich Village is also due to commence early in 2018 and will complete in the summer.

“We are delighted to welcome Simone Crofton to the role. She brings an impressive mix of experience which will prove invaluable to the future of the organisation. We have no doubt she will serve our beneficiaries and the area well. We look forward to working with her as we move towards marking our 400th anniversary in 2019.”

Ms Crofton commented:

“As a regular visitor to Dulwich, I am thrilled to join the organisation at such an important milestone in its history. I will work closely with businesses, residents and the wider community to build on The Dulwich Estate’s proud history of stewardship, supporting education and the elderly, contributing to this much loved and unique area of South East London.”
