Brentford Lock West has added another industry award to its tally as Chalico Walk secured a RIBA Regional Award.
Chalico Walk, designed by Mae Architects has recently been selected as one of the London winners of the RIBA’s regional awards.
This is the fourth RIBA Award for the development and follows a RIBA Award last year for The Arbor, as well as a RIBA National and a RIBA London Award in 2015, for The Halyards, the first collection of homes delivered as part of this large-scale regeneration scheme.
Chalico Walk was the first collection of homes to have been released on phase two at Brentford Lock West. It comprises two blocks alongside the Grand Union Canal.
Michael Auger, Regional Director for Brentford Lock West, said: “To have secured such a prestigious industry award is fantastic and testament to the emphasis we have placed on great design here at Brentford Lock West. It has always been important to us that the scheme as a whole pays tribute to its industrial heritage, while delivering a complimentary collection of new homes that reach the highest of design standards.”
Alex Ely, principal at Mæ said: “With Brentford Lock West, we looked to provide a contemporary, modern twist to the area’s former history as a harbour of industry. The result is a vibrant, diverse neighbourhood that represents intelligent design and a forward-thinking approach to urban renaissance.”
Keelson Gardens is the latest release of homes at Brentford Lock West, which are now selling off-plan.
Brentford Lock West forms part of a long-term regeneration project to breathe new life into Brentford through the anticipated delivery of in excess of 700 new homes. Close to local shops, leisure facilities, beautiful parks and waterside walkways, the scheme has been carefully designed to maximise the water frontage whilst offering stylish homes, community spaces and commercial buildings in a new desirable west London destination.
