Rowan Park, Merton, SW16 London, UK

This was the third site won by the SixtyK consortium in the UK government’s Design for Manufacture competition, with Sheppard Robson as lead consultant producing the masterplan and architectural design for the site of the former Rowan Road High School.

The 6.05ha site holds 217 new homes, comprising new-build houses and the conversion of the locally listed school into flats. Façades have been designed with pushed-out bays on the north and east façades to maximise winter sun, and pushed-in bays on the south and west for shade. This creates visual interest and variety within the street. The scheme includes a proposal for a new medical surgery and a community hall.
