The Station Road housing project reinvigorated a prominent corner plot in the centre of South Norwood by creating 14 new homes two minutes’ walk from Norwood Junction Station. The site had previously been used as a surface level car park and had been vacant for nearly 30 years. Langley Design were tasked by Neilcott to provide a bespoke cycle and bin store facility that was not only practical but also something that looked fantastic so the residents can enjoy. The scope was for high-quality cycle shelters with matching enclosed bin store and all the units to have sedum roo fs. We needed to fit 18 spaces across two tight external areas.
As the UK’s leading sedum roof cycle shelter provider, we were able to design this unit as per the architects’ plans, using premium hardwood cumaru and a galvanised and powder coated frame. Semi Vertical racks were used inside the shelter to provide the maximum amount of capacity available in the space given, a perf ect solution for urban residential projects. We were also chosen to design manufacture and install a matching cumaru screen behind one of the cycle stores to keep the design in keeping with the courtyard.
