The site, at the foot of a north-facing railway embankment, called for a linear plan with flats looking north over the adjacent landscape square.
Due to daylight considerations, the elevation steps up and projects out in a curve on plan at the axis of the access road to the north. At the extreme eastern end of the site a triangular area is filled to form a strong feature when approaching from Clapham Junction Station.
Given the frequency of trains passing the site en-route to Clapham Junction, it was thought that the blank, noise-resistant south elevation could contain a clock to mark the site.
