Brentford Lock West
A reserved matters planning application for Brentford Lock West has been submitted to London Borough of Hounslow. The application covers a submission by three architectural practices (Duggan Morris Architects, Karakusevic Carson and Riches Hawley Mikhail) and landscape architects Camlins, for Phase 1 of a multi-phase development site.
The Duggan Morris Architects scheme consists of 45 residential units fronting onto the canalside and split over 2 plots. The buildings are conceived as cranked blocks following a meandering neighbourhood street held together by a large base plinth. The blocks are designed as a pair, both following a series of simple rules. The predominant building material is brick, whilst a subtle play with the details defines positions of windows and balconies.
The project was won through competition in September 2011.
