A2Dominion are working with architects Saunders on a new development for Perivale in Greater London which will provide 100% affordable homes.
The site in the London Borough of Ealing is owned by the housing association and sits on the southern side of the A40 Western Avenue.
57 new affordable homes are planned, with 52% being for affordable rent and 48% for shared ownership and 10% with a wheelchair requirement. The new homes will sit in two accessible blocks standing from 8 to 9 storeys high both with separate entrances and with specific attention to wheelchair access. At ground level there is cycle storage, parking for 5 disabled spaces, and amenity space including a children’s play area.
The partners say the design approach is based on traditional forms and detailing to reflect the predominately brick character of the area and the emerging developments along Western Avenue. A series of set-backs are proposed to the facades to articulate the massing and different elements of the building are accentuated with a staggering of building heights.
Danny Lynch, Director of Land and Development, A2Dominion said: “It’s been great working with Saunders and we’re delighted with their design, which sits well with the surrounding area and will provide high-quality homes for the people of Ealing. Like A2Dominion, Saunders understand the value of good quality, affordable housing for people in London and that’s what’s made this partnership such a success.”
David Roles of Saunders commented: ‘With a need for homes in the capital and its surrounding areas, let’s hope this new development is part of a catalyst for growth in social housing. The Perivale site is in an ideal location for families to work and live.’
