This residential development is located on the site of the former Dairy Crest headquarters situated between Esher and Claygate.
Work has started for the change of use to 59 residential units, with a rooftop extension for an additional 15 flats.
A new planning application has been lodged for a new build apartment block and 11 terraced houses to the rear of the site, which borders metropolitan greenbelt.
The existing south facing courtyard will become a formally landscaped amenity space creating a focal point, whilst a wide tree lined avenue will separate the terrace of family houses to the south, creating long views through the site.
The existing facade to Claygate house creates a striking elevation on approach from Littlewood Road, with full height vertical stone fins standing proud of dark glazing and spandrel panels behind.
It is proposed that these stone fins be refurbished and the brick
surround rendered to create a more homogeneous composition.
Windows will be replaced with dark grey framed opening vents
for control to individual flats - possibly with a further level of
screening as required.
