Architect designs 37 timber-clad homes by Great Western Railway

pH+ has won planning permission for 37 timber-clad homes on a disused brownfield site in Acton, west London.

The scheme called Rosebank Works is on a wedge-shaped site beside the Great Western Railway and has been designed to diminsh in height to fit in with the local neighbourhood.

The new homes range from four-storey apartments to one- and two-storey mews houses towards the thinner end of the wedge-shaped site.

According to pH+ timber hardwood will be mainly used to clad the homes, and reflects its meandering garden design concept. The wooden configuration will wrap around the scheme to create openings and closures within the façade. To contrast a metallic finish will be used for the circulation areas and walkways.

In addition to the new housing, of which 12 units will be “affordable”, a single-storey commercial unit is proposed at the front of the site. The development will be car-free.
