Our proposal layout takes forward the masterplan drawn by Graham Dawbarn, following a series of concentric elements, radiating outwards from Inner Ring / Helios Plaza. The new buildings respect the existing building frontages and emphasise the original site layout.
This approach continues beyond the current service road with a sequence of buildings enclosing communal courtyards.
Respecting the heights of the surrounding residential areas, the buildings step down in scale to the south culminating in town houses arranged around a ‘Village Green’.
The scheme proposes the demolition of the existing ‘East Tower’ and replaces this with a more slender and curved building, which is re-orientated to better connect with Wood Lane, creating an improved frontage.
