Abbey Road, St John's Wood
This sensitive site within the St John’s Wood Conservation Area is reconfigured to enhance a Grade II listed Synagogue and replace an unattractive 1960’s development with a contemporary apartment building.
The new residential building provides 32 homes within an envelope articulated in brick with slim horizontal bands of stone. The existing New London Synagogue is enhanced with a new single storey entrance, subservient to the main listed façade, which leads to a multi-use community space opening onto a courtyard garden.
Jewish Care approached Fathom having stalled at consultation stage with two previous submissions. After a positive pre-application meeting in 2017, we are now instructed to planning.
