Born out of a competition winning bid with Network Housing Group, the regeneration of the Rectory Park Estate in Ealing is transforming the neighbourhood into a vibrant place to live with 449 new mixed-tenure homes.
|Client||Network Homes and Hill|
|Number of Homes||449|
|Tenure Mix||40% affordable, 15% shared ownership, 14% private|
|Other Uses||200 sqm Community Centre|
|Planning Approved||September 2012|
The scheme places a strong focus on the design of landscaped spaces to complement the estate’s proximity to the neighbouring Northolt and Greenford Countryside Park. As a result of extensive community engagement, BPTW’s design has produced a masterplan formed around character spaces and park views.
A large communal garden area forms the central focus of the development, and puts the community at the heart of this masterplan. An active part of the existing community, this area sees the re-provision of the community centre. Particular attention has been given to developing a landscaping strategy which addresses the park edge, to provide a seamless transition between the open public park, the recreation area and the landscaped spaces within the new masterplan.
