The D*Haus Company to replace derelict petrol station with decorative brick terrace



The D*Haus Company has revealed visuals of The Arches, a row terraced houses in London that will be characterised by rounded windows and red brick walls.
When built, The Arches will replace an abandoned petrol station in the Dartmouth Park Conservation Area, and comprise six three-storey sunken houses.

The D*Haus Company's design is informed by both the history and architecture surrounding the site as a series of previous proposals were rejected by the local council for ignoring context.
"We were appointed over a year and a half ago to see if we could produce a design that met the high expectations of the residents, yet delivered the clients brief of turning this abandoned looking petrol station into a lovely place to live," said the studio's director David Ben Grunberg.
"We first analysed exactly where the previous scheme went wrong," he continued.
"Once we went through the planning refusal reports in detail we started to design based on all these external factors: appropriate site mass, quality of design, orientation, setting, etc."

The D*Haus Company's proposal evolved from the initial idea of recreating the Victorian green lung ? an area of parkland in an urban landscape ? that once existed on the site.

Set back from the road, The Arches aims to reconnect the two green spaces that currently flank the petrol station, and form a "clear unbroken green line" along the street that doubles as an open public space.
