Abode supplies 89 homes in London regeneration project
Abode, designer and distributor of kitchen & bathroom solutions, has collaborated with Flawless Kitchens, Durkan Homes and Southwark Council on the prime development of Manor & Braganza: an innovative building project in Kennington, SE17.
In a quiet corner of South London where Braganza Street meets Manor Place lives a modest community with a big personality at the heart of an exciting regeneration project. Comprising 89 new homes across neighbouring sites, this development offers a series of one-to-four-bedroom apartments, duplexes and three-storey townhouses with 33 affordable homes and three intermediate homes being offered for sale and rent. Just two minutes’ walk from Kennington tube station to give easy access to the West End and City of London, the first phase was finished in Autumn 2023, with the remaining homes scheduled for completion in early 2024.
Graeme Blythe, national contract sales manager at Abode says, “Creating new homes in established neighbourhoods requires careful planning and creative design, which is sympathetic to the needs of the community and anticipates future living trends. As the aesthetic at Manor & Braganza is bright and beautifully finished while demanding quality at the highest level, we were delighted to collaborate with kitchen furniture supplier Flawless Kitchens on the design and supply of all sinks and taps.”
To complement the high specification of this prime London development, Abode supplied both its Globe Single Lever tap (AT2149) in Matt Black and bestselling R15 Matrix 1.5 bowl stainless steel sinks (AWS124/26). The sleek WRAS-approved Globe Single Lever features a slim body and sleek spout with discreet hot and cold indicators, making it the perfect complement to the practical luxury of open-plan living. The on-trend Matt Black finish makes Globe the ideal tap choice for a deluxe modern kitchen, and it is supplied with a five-year warranty.
The bestselling Abode R15 Matrix 1.5 bowl stainless steel sink ensures that homeowners can take care of food prep and home hygiene with ease. The very latest pressing technology has been used to create a very precise shape to the sink with almost square radiuses to ensure that the kitchen planning team could make the most of the available worktop space without compromising on style. The R15 Matrix sink can be installed undermounted or as a low profile inset option, and is available in both a left hand and right-handed option.
As a homebuilder of choice for London and the South East, Durkan Homes is committed to excellence, expertise and innovation, and like Abode it thrives on continually responding to the ever-evolving needs of homeowners while delivering a robust ESG policy which supports local communities. In addition to new affordable homes, the project will be adding a new health centre, pharmacy, café and employment space to an area of Southwark, which already benefits from a strong sense of community pride and reputation as being a great place to live.
Elegantly set back from the bustling residential streets, Braganza fosters a quietly different place to live, which encircles a central courtyard of landscaped gardens for a beautiful slice of nature. With a selection of properties available that cater to families, couples, co-habiters and solo occupiers, Braganza is the place to be if you desire convenience, space and a rewarding lifestyle. Complemented by a modernist architectural style, the clean lines and crisp edges of the flat roofs and bronzed glazing add a simple elegance throughout this development, where many properties get to enjoy their own private outdoor space with a number of homes with added cycle storage in the front garden.
Manor is an island site that looks over Pasley Park to the rear and Walworth Community Gardens in front. Featuring convenient ground floor retail, a dedicated entrance to the 26 private sale apartments over 5 floors, and secure cycle storage for residents. The old building at Manor was a big presence in this quiet neighbourhood, with an aesthetic charm that is the signature of South London. The building was unsuitable for conversion and renovation, so Durkan Homes faithfully replicated the original Victorian facade with an entirely new building constructed within to create a collection of contemporary apartments without compromising on architectural style, space, and layout. To further preserve the heritage of the area, the developer also reinstated retail units to benefit the whole community.
The considered blend of old and new coming together at the Manor & Braganza development helps to preserve the history and heritage of this prime area, all the while creating beautiful new homes that deliver on design and contemporary living.
