Birch House

Kidbrooke Village Centre
Berkeley Homes
Under Construction

The vision for Birch House provides a mixed used scheme with a focal point and destination for the wider neighbourhood offering high quality homes at a higher density around generous open spaces.

In response to increasing housing demand, continuing evolution of the Village Centre and the need to ensure that it is a sustainable and viable place, a 21 storey mixed-use tower is proposed at this location.

It is designed to create a vertical community, able to live and enjoy recreation through the provision of well orientated common areas and amenity spaces. 

The design objectives are to provide high quality residential units, focusing on quality of space and using exceptional views from the site to optimal effect. Residential units will also have high quality amenity spaces that provide appropriate shelter from the elements.

Employment space will be delivered on the ground floor in the form of high quality restaurant/retail space that will also activate street frontages and public realm. The tower is inspired by the common design language from the emerging buildings at the Village Centre and the landscape of the Metropolitan Open Land Park.
