The Bryden Wood development in Forest Hill takes shape

The Bryden Wood Churchwood Gardens development in Forest Hill, Lewisham, London is approaching the halfway stage. The scheme is formed of nine buildings, each incorporating a stepped profile allowing for the formation of a cascade of ‘green’ roof spaces at alternative levels. Each building has a closed façade, which faces the boundary, and an open façade containing large areas of glazing and boundaries facing into the development. The closed facades have been specifically designed to include an extruded centre, allowing daylight to enter rooms whilst not affecting privacy.

Paul O’Neill – Bryden Wood Architecture Director said: “We are really pleased how the scheme has shaped up given that biodiversity was a planning priority. The development also has several energy-saving features, including photovoltaic panels and also incorporates a range of measures to safeguard the most important ecological features and promote biodiversity. All the buildings have green roofs, some of which will form wild flower meadows. In addition, the top-most roof of each building will be a ‘brown’ roof, specifically designed to encourage habitation by native wildlife.”

The construction of Churchwood Gardens started in 2016 and buildings one and nine now almost complete. Facing Tyson Road, both buildings are at roof level. The windows and roofs are complete, and landscaping works along Tyson Road boundary will start in the following weeks.
