Assael Architecture has won planning permission for a retail and housing scheme in Chiswick, London.
Planners at London Borough of Hounslow voted to approve the scheme, by developer Lend Lease, which will create 137 new homes and 816m2 of retail space in a conservation area.
Half of the new homes will be sited in a former office block, which will be reclad and redeveloped with two extra floors.
A report by planning officers at the council said: ‘The recladding and vertical emphasis of the building better reflect the civic building it replaced and the materials it was constructed of and this would enhance the character of the conservation area…’
Residents will have access to roof gardens as part of the development, which also includes two completely new apartment blocks and four townhouses.
Assael Architecture director, Pete Ladhams, said: ‘The development will deliver high quality homes, including affordable and family housing, and a new public realm that creates a sense of place, improving the character of the conservation area and harnessing local heritage assets.’
