Planning approval granted for phase 2a
Lifschutz Davidson Sandilands and Alison Brooks Architects have been granted planning approval for the latest phase of the South Kilburn regeneration programme.
The pair, who worked together on the masterplan for the wider site, have designed a series of mansion blocks with 229 mixed-tenure dwellings around private communal gardens. The existing Bronte House and Fielding House towers will be demolished.
Lifschutz Davidson Sandilands has designed the terrace along the western edge of the site and a smaller block to the north. Meanwhile, Alison Brooks worked on the east terrace and the south ‘gateway’ building.
Alison Brooks said: “Our team’s scheme is as much about re-creating great streets as providing great family homes. Brent has provided a rare opportunity for our team to provide grand residential architecture, a spectacular communal garden, treed boulevards and a new public square.”
Paul Sandilands, director at Lifschutz Davidson Sandilands, added: “We have worked closely with Brent Council to fulfil the aims of its admirable regeneration programme and create a neighbourhood that provides high-quality, mixed tenure housing to a part of London where it is greatly needed.”
Demolition of Bronte House and Fielding House towers is due to start at the end of 2013.
