Road-side Weston Williamson project approved

Planners have approved Weston Williamson’s plans for a 14-unit housing project on a difficult site in West London

The facade of the block, designed for Stadium Housing Association, will be just 9m from the curb of the busy A4 at Talgarth Road in Hammersmith.

‘At the beginning you find these things a constraint,’ said lead architect Philip Breese. ‘But in the end they make for a more interesting architecture.’

The units all face existing housing behind the site and special consideration was given to screening and ventilation, Breese told the AJ. Half the units will be affordable homes.

A previous owner won permission for a three-storey office block on the site in 2003 but it was never built. Breese said he thought there may have been problems with accessing commercial units through the adjacent residential area.
