St Andrew's Park, Uxbridge.
This scheme for approximately 450 houses and apartments, was designed by Thrive for the former RAF Uxbridge site in the borough of Hillingdon (masterplan prepared by Sheppard Robson). The scheme will eventually include a new school, retail and other facilities. The design is predominantly contemporary whilst respecting the military history of the site.
Consented phases include a contemporary crescent and detached houses near to the retained Hillingdon House together with a small enclave of traditional houses. Further south contemporary townhouses frame a spine street with large four storey apartment blocks running along Hillingdon Road. A restrained palette of materials, mainly brick, is balanced by elements of detail such as balconies and large areas of glazing with dark window frames.
