St. Andrew's Park, Uxbridge:
(Site Visit 02nd September '18)
Our Urban Design Director, Gary Rider, recently visited the St Andrews Park, Uxbridge (former RAF Uxbridge MOD site). This development is a joint venture between Persimmon Homes and St Modwen. Thrive secured consents for all of the Persimmon phases and later phases for St Modwen. The photos are predominantly Persimmon phases and showcase the contemporary design language employed throughout the development, including the recently completed landmark apartment block with ground floor retail.
Parts of the development were designed around existing mature trees, which helps to offset the urban nature of the street form, as does the inclusion of a linear SuDs system and landscaping running along the central spine street.
Thrive Architects reworked aspects of the approved masterplan to deliver a mix of contemporary apartments, town houses and dwellings arranged around key spaces, primary streets, shared surfaces and parkland edges. The development includes a three storey feature crescent addressing existing landscaped parkland in the northern area and a series of four storey 'New London Style' apartment buildings facing Hillingdon Road to the west.
We're pleased to share with you these recent photos of the development, which highlights this contemporary scheme.
