Two Bridges Supported Housing
WWA Studios assisted the London Borough of Hounslow development partner Lampton 360 and EcoWorld London to create a new supported housing scheme. The project delivered 29 new homes, a mix of purpose-built supported housing, shared ownership and build-to-rent units.
The development is comprised of two blocks: one for general housing and one for supported housing. The second building adjacent building block provides new residential homes in line with the London Housing Design Guide.
The high-quality new homes are much needed in the area and deliver contemporary affordable and supported homes to the segment of the community most in need.
Our technical team delivered the scheme from RIBA Stage 4 onwards through a Design and Build procurement following inheriting the design from the previous architects. A key challenge the team overcame was detailing the fire strategy which was complex owing to the layouts of the buildings. The detailing and design of the two-tone brick facades were undertaken with great care to ensure the concept was delivered and included bespoke detailing of the part-brick, and part-metal balustrade.
The landscaping around the building provides a natural setting for the buildings and as the vegetation matures it will provide various health and well-being benefits to residents associated with the natural environment.
