The development steps in height to negotiate between the modest scale of Abbey Wood Village and the surrounding hills in which the ruins of the historic Lesnes Abbey are located. Rooftop terraces provide amenity space for residents with views northwards towards the River Thames and incorporate planting that references the surrounding wood.
The brickwork incorporates rustication and variation in mortar colour resulting in a stratified appearance inspired by the geology of the site and the ruins of Lesnes Abbey.
