As its name suggests, West Norwood Fire Station, 445 Norwood Road was once an operational fire station. Constructed in 1914-5, the station protected the local residents and business for several years.
With the area now served by a new state-of-the art London Fire Brigade facility, the conversion of this grade II listed fire station into twelve one and two-bedroom apartments has been carried out sympathetically preserving the historic architectural façade and many of the original internal features of the iconic building, including exposed wooden beams, the old fire escape ladders and the iconic red painted front bay doors serving the station. The newly renovated apartments have been completed to a very high standard and include high-spec. kitchens and bathrooms.

The new development at the rear of the building, consists of ten (two and three-bedroom) apartments that benefit from a communal landscaped courtyard while the environmental impact of the building has been reduced through the design of a photo-voltaic array on the green, sedum roof.
