View project intro

The development by Bell Philips Architects will establish a strong identity at this key gateway location within the Swanley Town Centre, distinguished by its curved façade. A large publicly accessible communal garden will be located in the centre of the site designed to be a green oasis with a large lawn area, flowering trees and opportunities for rest and play. The courtyard will be accessible to the public during daytime hours, creating a new garden space for the residents of Swanley.

The streetscapes along Bevan Place and Goldsel Road have been enhanced through the planting of trees and the addition of a wide defensible green zone along Goldsel Road. An additional sun-soaked rooftop garden provides residents with smaller contemplative spaces and offers south-facing views to the Kent countryside.
