Western Avenue, Perivale


London Borough of Ealing


A2Dominion / Bugler

A new development in the London Borough of Ealing which provides 100% affordable homes, formed in two blocks standing 8 to 9 storeys high. The site is located on the southern side of the A40’s Western Avenue, a major route in and out of the capital.

The scheme consists of 57 affordable units, with 52% being for affordable rent and 48% for shared
ownership, 10% meeting wheelchair requirements. At ground level there is cycle storage, parking, and amenity space including a children’s play area. The design approach was based on traditional forms and detailing to reflect the predominately brick character of the area and the emerging developments along Western Avenue. A series of setbacks were proposed to the facades to articulate the massing and different elements of the building are accentuated with a staggering of building heights.

The elevations provide a well ordered rhythm and structure with full height windows and a mix of inset and projecting balconies. High quality materials were in keeping with the brick character of the surrounding context: a palette of rich textured bricks in two contrasting colours framed by smooth vertical and horizontal stone/ cladding bands that project from the facade.

Saunders were appointed at delivery but initially undertook a detailed design review of the planning approved scheme leading to a comprehensive resubmission to address buildability risks and
incorporate greater efficiencies with internal layouts and elevational updates to reflect emerging detailing of the external façade design. All information was drawn and coordinated in Revit.

Construction commenced on site in September 2020 and completed in late 2021.
