RIBA Stage 3
Design proposals are out to consultation on a comprehensive redevelopment for Westminster City Council on Church Street comprising 1,100 mixed-tenure homes, public realm, a library, retail, workspace and infrastructure supporting the market.
Bell Phillips Architects are working on the first of the three plots comprising over 400 homes, a library, public realm, retail space and infrastructure supporting the market.
Economic, environmental and social sustainability are key to the proposals. The design seeks to provide resilience to the local area through the support of the street market and provision of affordable retail and workspace. New public amenity space, a new library and community space will contribute to social cohesion whilst existing residents will be given the opportunity to return to a new home providing that the existing community stays in place. The homes are designed to be low energy to address fuel poverty incorporating high levels of insulation and airtightness, triple-glazed windows, PVs, air-source heat pumps and MVHR. Over 90% of dwellings are designed to be dual aspect.
