Acton Gardens Phase 7.2 will deliver a residential scheme of 185 new homes of varying tenure including Active Living homes as part of the wider Acton Gardens Masterplan.

The project provides a new energy centre housing a site wide District Heating System. The Energy Centre will play a key role which in reducing carbon emissions and providing residents with cleaner and greener energy.

The design is a courtyard building in a modern interpretation of a London square garden architecture consisting of four blocks between 6 and 12 storeys with a communal courtyard garden for all residents.

The ground floor maisonettes have a distinct architectural language which forms a base to the buildings above and unifies them across the site. The vertical rhythm of the façade provides a rational composition with good proportions. Recessed vertical slots are used to articulate separation between elements within the composition and between different tenures allowing for changes in brickwork colour. An emphasised ‘crown’ to the buildings gives a clear base, middle and top to the architecture.
