Assael Architecture given green light for Alfa Laval regeneration scheme

Planning permission has been granted for Assael Architecture’s major regeneration project at the former Alfa Laval site in Brentford, London. Working with client Carlton Properties, Assael are looking to transform the rundown 1.85 hec site which as stood derelict for over twenty years with an extensive £100m regeneration programme. The urban brownfield site has been closed off to the public for the last two decades, however this is about to change as plans include new public open spaces, pedestrian and cycle routes and a modest area for community use.

Assael’s mixed-use plan will incorporate a 4,205 sq m commercial office building, two hotels, large amounts of private and affordable housing and the re-cladding of the existing Alfa tower. Of the 206 residential units, 30% will be affordable family housing – an unusually high proportion for a site of this nature. The scheme draws inspiration from existing architecture near the site, including several Art Deco style buildings along the Golden Mile. Assael intend to utilise traditional building materials in a contemporary manner to reflect the various environments, spaces and uses across the site.
