Regeneration informed by the community

Friary Park estate in Acton is being regenerated to deliver over 1,000 new homes to West London. Chapman Taylor was appointed to lead the redesign and delivery of an enhanced scheme that has been informed by residents and the local community following a comprehensive engagement programme.

The proposals were developed through a comprehensive consultation process with the residents, local community and the local authority, London Borough of Ealing, and the GLA.

Carefully integrated into the local neighbourhood

In addition to our design delivery services for Phases 1 and 2, Chapman Taylor was appointed to revisit the consented masterplan with a focus on improving placemaking and integrating the scheme more successfully into the local neighbourhood.

New amenity spaces

The redesign introduces a more active, mixed of uses on the ground floor, and enhanced resident and community amenities including a gym, co-working spaces, cinema, and residents lounge, all arranged around a new central public square that creates a focal point at the heart of the scheme and promotes a sense of community. Affordable workspace (40% of the commercial floor area) provide a permanent, affordable home for Ealing’s creative community.

Affordable, tenure-blind homes

The revised building designs provide flexibility to accommodate home working and the provision of larger private amenity spaces in response to the changes in our live/work patterns post-pandemic. The scheme is tenure-blind and includes social rent, London affordable rent, intermediate tenure, and private for-sale homes.
