THE SCHEME   This mixed use housing-led scheme is a local flagship development centrally located next to Harrow on the Hill Station. A stylish central plaza within the development will create an area focal point for events and activities for the local community.

DESIGN APPROACH   The proposal looks to create a thoughtful, flexible public space that caters for the multitude of ground floor tenants, new residents and families.

INNOVATION   Within the design there are a number of exciting and innovative elements including an interactive art wall, a library oratory and a large ‘Meet & Greet’ community table and water feature. There will be play opportunities for all ages spotted throughout the development. A series of bio-diverse solar roofs, private and communal roof terraces round up a sensitive development approach for 51 College Road.
