Dexters partner with developers and housing associations across London. So we definitely have an interest in this story about residents of Southwark's Neo Bankside glass-walled apartments complaining that visitors to the neighbouring Tate Modern were "looking in" at them.
Amidst a climate of suspicion about newly-developed apartment-towers snapped up by investors only to remain empty, we say at least this shows someone was at home.
However, we're also firmly of the opinion that status-inspired glass castles in the sky are not the only way to develop, particularly if responsible development and responsible property investment is important to you - as it is to us.
Sympathetic design, a mix of high and low-rise buildings to suit a mix of budgets, a nod to the traditional character of the area, the use of materials that harmonise with the environment, plus ecologically principled development, all equal sustainable development without compromising on luxury.
As Joanna Plant of Dexters' New Homes team says, "We market warehouse inspired developments in former industrial areas, contemporary homes in conservation areas and high-specification flats in historic buildings that - instead of being bull-dozed - have been painstakingly restored."
A view is not a one-way privilege. Sure, you can have a panoramic window, but there will also be a view back in. It is a condition highlighted in recent complaints by residents in the Neo Bankside apartments that visitors to neighbouring Tate Modern’s new viewing gallery were using it to look right into their apartments. There have been letters. Sir Nicholas Serota, the outgoing director of the Tate, probably didn’t help when he suggested the residents put up net curtains. Yet the flippant (and also rather brilliant) comment did highlight a contemporary condition, and a facet of modern architecture, that is little discussed but which is destined to become a real problem as the skylines of global cities compete to out-glass-tower each other with ever denser developments.
