London-based practice East has submitted plans for a 127-home scheme on the former Kodak factory site in Harrow
The project would see construction of a podium supporting three five-sided blocks of six, eight and 14 storeys on a triangular plot within the BDP-masterplanned Harrow View East development.
Backed by housing association L&Q, East’s proposals include a health centre as well as the residential units.
The practice said its brick-and-concrete buildings provided a ‘suitable contrast’ to the linear grain established close to the plot.
‘Architecturally the building has a unique identity, yet it is also designed to tie in closely with the scale, identity and materiality of the emerging development and the larger landscape which they all share,’ said the practice.

Each home will have double-aspect views and receive light and ventilation to the living and kitchen spaces. A mix of portrait and landscape windows will ‘provide a variety of visual connections with the outdoors’ said East.
Proposals include 17 family-sized three-bed homes and 12 wheelchair-accessible units.
The planning application has been submitted to Harrow Council.
Pollard Thomas Edwards earlier this year landed planning permission for 460 homes within Harrow View East.
In December 2017, bptw partnership secured planning consent for a 650-home scheme in the development.
BDP’s masterplan for the whole former Kodak industrial complex includes 1,800 homes, a school, shops and commercial space.
