Slough Borough Council have given the green light for three quirky new terrace houses to be built.

Award-winning architecture practice Office S&M has achieved planning permission on behalf of JKA Property for the houses on an infill site on London Road in Slough.

The houses, which boast an unusual design with 'unconventional windows' are said to draw on surrounding design motifs, materials and colour palettes with the aim of creating a 'joyful series of terraced homes'.

"It represents a contemporary interpretation of the Arts & Crafts movement for the new residents and their neighbours to enjoy," Office S&M said.

"The new homes are not located in a conservation area but it is still very important that the design is respectful of local character."

In the design phase, the architects carried out an 'extensive study' of nearby buildings and their details creating a 'look book' of inspiration.

The plans put forward to the council include a 'series of unusual windows' with inverted chamfering, 'expressive peaks' and diamond shapes.

The shapes are said to be inspired by the eclectic mix of fenestration across the likes of Churchill House and St Bernard’s School.

Catrina Stewart, Partner, Office S&M, and project architect, said: “We are so pleased and excited that these new homes on London Road have been granted planning permission.

"They represent a high quality and enriching addition to the streetscape.

"The project was carefully crafted to respect the overall materiality and composition of the street-facing elevations while adding a dose of joy and originality.

"In an area rich in character and history, this new scheme will be a positive contemporary addition which will nestle comfortably into its setting.”
