Waxwell Lane London

Waxwell Lane London

New mews street development for Harrow Council, in the historic village of Pinner, Greater London.

2016
Client: London Borough of Harrow
Project Status: Planning consented

Gort Scott are designing a development of 20 houses, forming a new mews street on an existing council owned car park in the centre of Pinner, London Borough of Harrow. The proposal has been granted planning permission.

The site is part within and adjacent to Waxwell Lane Conservation Area, and sits within the Archaeological Priority Area of Medieval Pinner. The design carefully responds to the historic character of the area: modest massing sits comfortably within the scale of the surroundings, and a restrained pallet of red brick and red pre-cast concrete sills are used. The idiosyncratic forms and motifs of local historic buildings have been reinterpreted in the large windows, asymmetric frontages and decorative brick detailing of the proposal.

Two unit types are combined to optimise density and open space: a three-bedroom, one room wide type, and a four-bedroom, two rooms wide type. Both types step back from the mews street, from two to three stories, providing a terrace overlooking a shared planted green space. Soft landscaping is used throughout the site to provide places to sit and play.
