The second phase will include 141 new homes as well as commercial space on the ground floor along Commerce Road.
Mæ Architects have been appointed to design the second phase and have been working to ensure that this second phase offers a different architectural perspective, while complementing the initial phase of homes, currently under construction
Katie Sully, Development Director at ISIS Waterside Regeneration, said: “With homes on the initial phase at Brentford Lock West selling well, securing planning for the second phase marked a great end to a very successful year in 2014. The scheme has already had a positive impact on this little corner of west London, with increased use of the local waterways and initiatives such as Cultivate London (an innovative urban farm, which has been on site since works first commenced), really adding to the sense of community that is building here. It was always the intention to have a number of architects design the different phases to ensure architectural diversity and it’s important to us that we continue to liaise closely with the local community as the development evolves. We are very excited about the fresh perspective Mæ Architects will bring.”
Alex Ely, partner at Mæ Architects, added: “We’ve designed a scheme that is architecturally distinct whilst being of its place. Our design takes its cues from the waterways and its wharf architecture as well as drawing on characteristics of the nearby conservation area. We are excited about now taking it forward to construction and adding our bit to this great development.”
Situated along the banks of the Grand Union Canal, Brentford Lock West forms part of a five year project to deliver 520 new homes. In addition to housing, the scheme will also deliver new community spaces and commercial buildings, along with roof top allotments and a new watersports hub to be operated by Brentford Football Club Community Sports Trust.
