Bowes Road Residential Development – Ealing, London
Linden Hill Capital
Bowman Riley has designed a new apartment building to redevelop and enhance an underused site within a sustainable and accessible residential neighbourhood in Ealing, West London.
Located in Palmer’s Green, the site of the new development was an extremely contentious piece of land with overlooking issues and difficult site access.
Working closely with our client and the planning consultant, we created a bespoke four-storey apartment building that achieved planning consent at appeal. A subsequent planning application led to consent for an additional storey resulting in a five-storey building.
Consent was achieved by producing an innovative tiered design to combat the overlooking issues and reduce the damage to the light quality of the adjacent properties. The strategic positioning of windows helped to meet all design standards and separation distances between the buildings.
We introduced bespoke feature windows to reduce overlooking throughout the building whilst still allowing ample light into habitable rooms. A full-length translucent panel allows natural light into the rooms whilst prohibiting overlooking in or out.
The building comprises a mix of nine one, two and three-bedroom apartments, two of which are duplexes. Several bespoke design features have been incorporated into the scheme including roof lights, undercroft parking, green roofs and photovoltaic panels.
