Award-winning architects were selected to design striking contemporary residences. The use of high quality materials maximises the longevity of the building, reduces energy and maintenance bills, while minimising the impact of the building on the environment. The use of traditional London stock bricks ensures the front elevation harmonises with the surrounding houses. on the RISE apartments are 25% wider than the average Victorian house in the local streets. A range of apartment sizes and configurations are available, from a generous 54 square metre one bedroom plus study to extensive four bedroom family maisonettes of over 210 square metres.
Meticulous attention to detail is obvious in the design and layouts. Light floods into each unit from floor to ceiling windows that open onto private gardens and balconies; full height doors, coupled with underfloor heating throughout, leaves the apartments looking bright, spacious and uncluttered.
The kitchens at on the RISE have been individually designed for convenience and practical usage. Full gloss cabinets conceal high-performing, integrated appliances and one-piece Corian worktops complete the sleek, open plan design.
The eco-conscious design uses only the latest materials and technology, including a “brown roof” and solar panels for every apartment. The result is an extremely energy efficient and sustainable building with very low running costs that far exceeds the Code for Sustainable Homes, Level 4. Thus, service charges at on the RISE are estimated at under £1 per square foot per annum, one third the cost of comparable local developments.
