New Road Triangle

Client:Hounslow Council/ EcoWorld

Value:32 million



Consisting of a pair of ten and thirteen storey blocks, the 176 home scheme provides a new gateway marker to the developing northern town centre and train station arrival. The former 0.5HA underutilised Network Rail site will enable additional centrally located family housing.

Increased significantly during the delivery stages, 70% of the new homes have been completed for Hounslow Council as social rental apartments for local people. The scheme is an exemplar for the joint venture between EcoWorld and Lampton 360. Our detailed design and delivery with CField enables the Lifschutz Davidson Sandilands planning concept to be delivered efficiently and within a tight time frame.

Activation and passive supervision via the new residential use to the western side of the Longford River has enabled wider towpath enhancement and connection to Glebelands Park. The large building mass when viewed from the south is chamfered and stepped to provide relief and variation. The private amenity spaces are delivered through four balcony types addressing thermal bridging and assisting in softening gable and long elevations.

The wide variation of apartment layouts, sizes and typology creates a welcome offer to new residents. The delivery of these behind the original designed regular façade, created fabric, building services and compliance challenges. This was developed and resolved through close working relationships with the subcontractors and main contractor, delivering a project surpassing the 2022 Part L requirements.

This focus on new social housing delivery shows the importance being placed on regeneration of vacant and contaminated brownfield sites. A scheme that addresses the national housing crisis whilst producing landmark buildings as targeted in the Hounslow development plan.
