Richard Rogers lends support to development in his neighbourhood

TDO Architecture has been granted planning permission for a new-build townhouse in Chelsea, west London.

The site is on Old Church Street and sits within the Cheyne Conservation Area.

Local resident and architect Richard Rogers had backed the proposals as part of the planning appeal.

He said: “The 21st century has its own style which differs from the past but can still be complementary in scale and harmony. I believe TDO’s proposal presents an opportunity to replace a building of little significance with a contemporary design that fits harmoniously into the street.”

The building’s facade will be stock brick and bronze patinated gilders metal.

  • Clever how Photoshop has been used to make the colours of the new bit harmonise with the colours of the old bit. I bet the planning officers didn't notice. Misleading? Surely not!

  • Strange how the heavy bands of brickwork above the windows change from stack bond in one shot to rotated stretcher bond in the other one. And there's two panels in the mansard to the left of the left window on one - and only one panel on the other! And even more obvious, the large panel with the number 47 on is missing on the oblique photo - but not showing as recessed on the front-on one which might have otherwise explained the omission :-)

  • Well, nothing gets past you chaps. I must say, well done! How awfully cheeky of the architects to select harmonising colours, and then to use the medium of a computer generated image to display their effrontery! And the glaring discrepancies between these confounding depictions surely hints at a lack of due care and diligence, if not breathtaking conceitedness and contempt on the part of both designer and illustrator!

    I dunno tho I fink its quite good. Well done, TDO - a thoughtful contemporary addition to the area.

  • @David Jones- great work and well spotted. There does seem to be a considerable amount of smoke and mirrors going on here. Things are not what they seem.
