Design Development: West End Lane

The West End Lane elevation's roofline is matched to Canterbury Mansions and uses the same rhythm for the vertical bays and proportioning of the windows.The dormers and the red brick also reflect the character of many of the buildings on West End Lane.

New non-residential spaces, the offices on the first floor and the business start up units together with the new community meeting space will animate the street scene.

The proposed building allows for the pavement directly in front of the site to be widened, which will help ease congestion on West End Lane. The existing crossing point will be maintained.

Design Development: Corner & Rail Front

The corner onto the railway is curved and provides a soft transition to Potteries Path. The roofline, taken from Canterbury Mansions is consistent throughout the rest of the development. The materials are red brick with white banding. As with most mansion blocks, the elevation is regular with a simple roof profile.

Building materials

Predominantly red brick to fit in with prevailing character and style in West Hampstead. Other materials to include glazed bricks around entrances and along Potteries Path wall.

Relationship with Lymington Road

The north elevation has been restricted to 3 and 4 storeys with the tallest buildings placed furthest away overlooking the railway. The principle has been to reduce the impact of the development on the visual amenity of the existing residents on Lymington Road and on the Conservation Area. Distances between buildings are consistant with street layouts in the West Hampstead area.
