"The scheme is developed in close consultation with the London Borough of Harrow. In response to the local character the stepped design uses a variation in brick texture to further break down the volume into smaller segments."
The urban mediator: The five storey, 42 unit residential development at Greenhill Way was granted planning despite two appeals by others previously being dismissed at the same height and density due to overbearing impact.
Shortlisted for the Housing Design Award 2016 the scheme is recognised for its successful urban design, preparation for cost effective construction and improvement of the urban realm.
The building is stepped breaking its mass into smaller volumes that correspond both with the residential as well as the urban character of the area. Different brick patterns further enhance the sculptural composition, while at the same time keeping the building vertically aligned for cost effective construction and the use of a cross-laminated timber (CLT).
