The Boardwalk, Goat Wharf, Brentford

Client: Notting Hill Housing

Located in a desirable location next to the River Thames and opposite the World Heritage Site of Kew Gardens, The Boardwalk Goat Wharf comprises of 86 contemporary 1 to 3 bed apartments and duplex penthouses which benefit from fantastic views towards Kew and across the Thames. The distinctive building offers a desirable and attractive place to live, fulfilling the potential to create high value apartments for sale.

The design of the new high street block was inspired by the wharf architecture of traditional river and canal side warehouses, with brick piers punctured by deep-set windows and metal panelling. The block which extends along Goat Wharf uses the same materials in a more contemporary way, with brick and metal framing, glazed angled balconies and generously sized full height windows. Amenity space is provided with a landscaped central piazza offering residents a private courtyard space. Having successfully developed the design up to planning, bptw was retained by contractor Allenbuild for the implementation stage which was completed in early 2014.
