Brentford scheme scoops architecture awards

The Brentford Lock West development in the London Borough of Hounslow has won two prestigious architectural awards.
It scooped two RIBAs (the Royal Institute of British Architect awards) in the national and London categories for The Halyards – the first homes to be delivered as part of the 520-home scheme.
The Halyards is designed by architects Duggan Morris and is based alongside the Grand Union Canal in Brentford. It also includes community spaces and commercial buildings, helping to create jobs for the area.
The majority of homes include waterside views – praised by the RIBA judges for “creating a distinctive presence” and for setting a “clear standard of excellence”.
Launched in early 2013, the majority of homes on the first phase of the development are already reserved. A limited selection of two and three-bedroom apartments, as well as four-bedroom townhouses, are still available for sale.
John Robinson, development director at Brentford Lock West, said: “The response we have had to the development since its launch has been really positive, with demand from local buyers in particular proving strong.
“It has always been important to us that we bring in a number of architects to design this development, allowing us to deliver an architecturally varied and impressive scheme that offers buyers the opportunity to secure a unique and very special new home. The Halyards were the first of the homes to launch and I think the recent award wins are testament to Duggan Morris’ work here.”
