NWCC creates 219 new high-quality homes as part of Phase 4 of Brent’s South Kilburn Regeneration Programme. The project redevelops 1-8 Neville House, 1-64 Winterleys, 113-128 Carlton House and Carlton Hall, replacing 88 homes. Within a challenging infill site, the project provides elegant and tenure-blind city homes with verdant courtyards and new play spaces.
112 social rent homes are cross-subsidised by private sales, as part of Brent’s South Kilburn Regeneration Programme, a 15-year programme to build approx. 2,400 new homes. The proposed redevelopment maintains an existing community of tenants in future phases, moving together to NWCC as part of the decant strategy.
The proposals take cues from Victorian mansion flats; using a robust palette of brick, glazed brick and cast stone with integrated signage features. The new homes are larger than existing stock, almost all are dual aspect and they use stacked layouts and repeating components to raise construction quality and thermal efficiency.
Throughout the design process, themed workshops were undertaken with the decant group. During this consultation, the importance of existing social connections was emphasised by residents, so layouts focus on shared communal spaces such as courtyard gardens and a new car-free street.
A meanwhile project was commissioned to engage the youth of South Kilburn, read more about the youth film project on the South Kilburn website.
