South Acton Phase 5
The scheme comprises 271 new homes in 6 blocks ranging from 5-12 storeys providing a mix of tenures - affordable rent, shared ownership, private sale and private for rent (PRS). The urban perimeter block has been carefully configured to provide breaks in the buildings to maximise sunlight into the internal courtyard, views out and the retention of existing trees to the benefit of residents using the shared communal landscaped amenity.
The ground floor is activated with maisonettes at ground floor providing front doors to the street and private rear gardens. Two storey duplex pavilions articulate the top floors to create an attractive roofline atop articulated brick mansion blocks. Materials have been selected to complement or match with the previous masterplan development phases.
The project was praised for its design quality by Officers and Committee Members and the build has matched the high standard set by the approved design.
