The Layout captures light and provides visual connections
Allford Hall Monaghan Morris for Workspace Group
Contract value: £35m
Located at the northern end of Ladbroke Grove, this project comprises a range of mixed tenure residential units together with commercial and retail space.
The buildings are simply composed brick forms with balconies and generous windows. The central residential block provides double aspect accommodation, accessed from an open internal street providing natural light to common parts.
AHMM has skilfully manipulated a simple courtyard model to create a legible layout, which both captures light and provides visual connections between all spaces and the exterior. The design of the building has been controlled and well detailed, providing an orderly urban face to Ladbroke Grove and a calm courtyard space to its interior.
