KINGSTON LANDSCAPE GROUP - PRINCIPAL AWard WINNER 2017
This demanding high-density mixed-use project in the heart of Ealing is nestled among three stunning historic buildings — Ealing Town Hall, Christ the Saviour Church and The Old Fire Station — with retail and community uses at street level and 698 apartments on upper floors with private courtyards, terraces and balconies. Green roofs, terraces and podium gardens were installed across eight different locations among these high-value apartments.
The sedum matting green roofs are inaccessible to residents but important due to the increase in biodiversity that will result. The project was full of logistical challenges. Being in the busy centre of Ealing made getting things to site difficult and the raised height areas meant moving materials by crane and hoist or moving materials through buildings. The finished result is a stunning mix of both public realm and private residential areas.
