Chapman Taylor acting as Executive Architect at Hayes Village

Hayes Village will provide 1,500 new homes to the community of Hayes in London and open nine-acres of previously unused green space. After closing its doors in 2014, the redevelopment of the 30-acre former Nestlé factory into new housing is due to significantly revitalise the immediate area.

The site includes a mix of affordable housing and private for sale, with options of 1-, 2- and 3-bedroom homes. A sensitive approach has been taken to the retention of existing facades where possible along with several new build mixed tenure blocks around elevated landscaped podiums of residents’ exclusive amenity use.

The site is also extensively landscaped to create a vibrant new community for all, with good transport links to the city centre. This includes a 1.3km walking trail, 200m running track, the redevelopment of the canal frontage, a new public square, and a convenient footpath from the historic green to Hayes and Harlington train station – a key beneficiary of Crossrail.

Chapman Taylor is acting as Executive Architect to deliver the scheme on behalf of Barrat London.
