Chiswick | London
124 apartments and 11,485 sq ft of B1 and D1 uses
Design and Build contract with Graham Construction for Bellway Homes to deliver this 124 apartment, high quality mixed use development of a brownfield site with ground floor offices, D1 nursery and estate management facility, adjacent Chiswick Park and the Gunnersbury Triangle Wildlife Trust.
The external envelope is a Techrete pre-cast concrete panel cladding system set off the rc frame with internal dry lining, requiring diligent design coordination to enable fast-track construction assembly.
The cladding expresses vertical core ‘buttresses’ with fine concrete fins on the public elevation and, by contrast, resorts to a strong horizontal rhythm on the private side, with the flow of the continuous curved balconies contrasting against the expansive glazing.
