Child Graddon Lewis Architects have submitted a planning application on behalf of A2Dominion Developments for the proposed redevelopment of a high profile site in West Hampstead in Camden. 

The residential led proposal for 156 West End Lane will create an inspiring and sustainable mixed-use development with new public open spaces so that occupants, visitors and local residents have the opportunity to enjoy this unique London location. 

Situated alongside network rail tracks and the high street (West End Lane), the context also includes a conservation area to the north and an existing play space to the east. 

The proposals include 163 new homes alongside flexible commercial, office and community space. The development includes 50% affordable housing containing family sized units and apartments that are fully wheelchair adapted as well as housing designed for active elderly. 

The wider community benefits include provision of flexible employment space, community meeting area and start-up business units. The community meeting room is a flexible space that A2Dominion are offering at peppercorn rent and to be managed by a local group. 

The proposed buildings are 6 and 7 storeys in height and designed to visually and physically connect to the existing townscape forming a positive corner onto West End Lane and new public spaces along the south. 

The fundamental design objective is to connect with the local area and create a development that is a natural extension of West Hampstead both physically and socially. To this end, extensive consultation has taken place throughout the design development stages and this has informed the final proposals.
