Work set to start on TateHindle's Mill Hill homes
Construction is set to start on this 133 home scheme by TateHindle in Mill Hill, north London
The housing-led regeneration of the former Inglis Barracks site, which was home to the Middlesex Regiment between 1905 and 1962, is backed by Countryside Annington - a joint venture between Countryside Properties and Annington Homes
The project features three and four bedroom townhouses and four storey apartment buildings ‘arranged as a series of stepped landscaped courtyard blocks’ on the sloping site which falls 13m from top to bottom.
Andrew Tate, director of architect TateHindle which won the job following an invited competition, said: ‘At the outset, street design and place-making were at the heart of our approach.
‘Embracing the steep site contours, a mix of houses and apartments are carefully composed to maximise outside-inside living with interior rooftop spaces and large semi-public gardens and terraces promoting a setting for family life.’
TateHindle won planning permission for the project in April this year and the scheme is being delivered by RHWL Architects.
Ground works have already started and building is expected to start in October. The first properties are due to complete in Spring 2014.
