First Central


Bellway Homes


Royal Park, London


139 apartments and a gymnasium

The site forms part of a masterplanned development for new commercial and residential property set within a landscaped park. The 139 dwellings are arranged in a plan configuration stepping from six to nine storeys around a deck carpark with landscaped podium.

The inspiration for the design approach is to use a limited material palette to define a succession of forms such that the larger, overall mass is broken down into more legible scale. A vibrant colour is introduced into the balcony pod interiors to animate the facades and to help the building be recognised against the surrounding development.
