Queens Wharf development in UK

A2Dominion has secured planning permission from the London Borough of Hammersmith & Fulham for its £25m Queens Wharf development in Hammersmith, London, UK.

Designed by Assael Architecture, the scheme will replace an existing office block built in the 1970s, which will be demolished.

Upon completion, the scheme will feature 81 new homes including 18 one-bedroom, 46 two-bedroom and nine three-bedroom apartments for sale, plus eight affordable homes.

The development will also feature commercial space for a restaurant with river views and a new section of the Thames pathway.

A2Dominion said that the development incorporates a curved design in response to the riverside location.

The new building will rise from four storeys on its Crisp Road frontage to seven storeys facing the River Thames.

The building steps back at the ground floor to create an increased sense of space for the river walk and to offer natural shading and outdoor terraced space for the restaurant.

Assael said that the building steps back again at the sixth floor to create terraces for the upper floor flats and enhance the townscape setting.

A2Dominion Development Director (London) Danny Lynch said, "The scheme, located close to the historic Hammersmith Bridge, has been carefully designed to deliver quality homes, which will be built to meet Level 4 of the Code for Sustainable Homes."

In August 2011, A2Dominion along with P3Eco won planning consent from Cherwell District Council for the £80m first phase of Bicester Eco development in Oxfordshire, UK.

The first phase of the plan includes the construction of 393 new homes and a 4,300ft² renewable energy centre.
