Westmead is a rigorously sustainable, medium-density, 65-unit housing scheme located at the edge of a conservation area, delivering 100% genuinely affordable accommodation at social rent –including a large proportion of family homes.

It is Westminster City Council’s first housing scheme to target Passivhaus standards and is set to almost achieve the Passivhaus Plus benchmark. The project is an exemplar case study as to how low energy principles can be brought into social housing-led residential design, where the practicalities of good layout, effective daylighting and easy maintenance are paramount.

The project will also be amongst the first delivered by Westminster Builds, the Council’s wholly owned company established to help deliver its ambitious regeneration and development programme.
