Osborn House


CLIENT: Patterson Holmes

SIZE: 680M2

STATUS: Completed

YEAR: 2016

 Osborn House is a four storey building originating from the 1970s. Located just north of Blackheath, the river Quaggy runs directly past the site as it makes its way to join the Ravensbourne and later connect with the Thames. Directly next to the site is Blackheath Park, and it’s only a short walk to Greenwich Park and the eponymous heath itself. Originally an office building, its close proximity to the amenity of large parks and natural spaces was one of the key drivers when deciding to convert it to a residential scheme.

Taking the existing footprint of 680 m2, we converted the building from commercial into residential use. It now includes thirty-nine apartments within the original shell, a process which was completed under permitted development, in addition to which we were able to supplement the scheme with four penthouses to the roof.
