DLG Architects is hoping to get planning permission for this mixeduse riverfront scheme in Brentford, west London. The practice was commissioned by developer Monument to create a 'grand-looking lock-keepers cottage' which would 'lean towards the river, creating a dialogue between land and water'. A previous developer has already built a residential scheme on the site, and this new project is a replacement for a 'globe-shaped' leisure facility which was given planning consent at the same time but not built. The new mixed-use scheme has been rejected by Hounslow Council planners due to complaints from residents overlooking it, but DLG is hoping to win a planning appeal. DLG founder Anthony Walker said: 'The scheme would certainly not be as intrusive as a transparent globe, which was given planning consent at the same time as the residential buildings. It is a sensitive scheme which uses timber cladding, allowing the waterfront to be managed 24 hours a day. The planning appeal has only just been submitted, and we are willing to listen to the residents and make some small design changes.'
