This excellent one-bedroom apartment with balcony is located on the fourth floor of Garland Court, an award-winning building designed by the renowned architects de Rijke Marsh Morgan (dRMM).
The flat measures approximately 517 sq ft. The open-plan reception room and kitchen has a full-height glazed sliding door leading to a balcony with lovely views over surrounding rooftops. There is also an entrance hall, a double bedroom with fitted wardrobe, and a bathroom.
Garland Court was built in 2006, as the pilot project for the Elephant & Castle Regeneration masterplan. The distinctive coloured façade is graded from canary yellow to vermilion, which creates a visual connection with the Victorian terraced houses in London stock brick to one side and the red-brick town hall to the other. The building provides a mix of private and social housing.
Following the completion of Garland Court, dRMM was named Public Housing Architect of the Year by Building Design. The magazine commended its ‘courageous new approach to public housing’. The project was also shortlisted for an RIBA Award, and the Grand Designs Magazine Awards.
Wansey Street is within a short walk of Elephant & Castle station, which offers Underground and National Rail services. St John’s Walworth Church of England primary school, which is rated ‘Outstanding’ by Ofsted, is just around the corner. Walworth Road has numerous retail outlets including a Marks & Spencer, and the historic East Street market is very close by.
