The 219 unit residential scheme which forms part of the wider Regeneration Programme, will provide 54% affordable housing (by habitable room) and deliver significant enhancements to the wider public realm, townscape and visual amenity.
TEP’s Landscape Design team has worked with architects Pollard Thomas Edwards and engineering practices Price and Myers and Engineering Services Design to realise this ambitious scheme for the London Borough of Brent. The landscape design includes two new courtyard gardens and a paved pedestrian-friendly street with extensive tree planting, informal play opportunities and social spaces. It also will include biodiversity enhancements such as insect hotels and bird boxes. In parallel with the architecture, the landscape proposals have drawn design inspiration from the nearby Victorian streets, with simple well-structured planting and modern interpretations of classic Victorian paving and boundary detailing.
The focus of the landscape design is to provide a quiet place for relaxation and a safe space for people to meet and interact. To ensure the scheme is resilient and lasts for future generations, the Landscape Design team worked closely with TEP’s Landscape Managers to implement appropriate management techniques and provide detailed management recommendations to maintain the communal areas.
TEP has worked on many residential schemes and believes it is important to develop beautiful places that integrate with their surroundings, but equally they need to be welcomed by local communities and ultimately be where people want to live. TEP works closely with its clients to understand these requirements and is proud to deliver designs which are sustainable for both the residents and the environment.
