Cladding manufacturer Kawneer has been busy on PRP Architects’ £250m Portobello Square scheme in Kensington, regenerating the less salubrious-sounding Wornington Green estate. The concrete framed, brick-clad phase 1 has been fenestrated with its AA54 composite casement windows, AA543 tilturns and AA720 doors in posh pewter, silver and champagne painted aluminium – all ensuring PRP gives the W10 area a little more TLC.
