Hester Architects Ltd


Ely Court

This scheme forms an integral part of the South Kilburn Regeneration Plan which by 2023 will provide 2400 new homes on the site of the former South Kilburn Estate.  The scheme was designed for The London Borough of Brent by Alison Brooks Architects in association with Lifschutz Davidson Sandilands and was granted planning permission in 2010.  Hester Architects Ltd were appointed by Catalyst Housing Group in 2012 and they worked closely with ABA to implement the proposals.


The Scheme

The scheme comprises a total of 43 units (25 market sales and 18 rented and shared ownership) across 3 separate blocks grouped around a rejuvenated public park.  It includes a terrace of distinctive 2 and 3 storey mews houses with private gardens along the newly formed Mews Lane, a series of 2 storey duplexes with double storey voids facing Chichester Avenue and a small block of accessible flats adjacent to the Brondesbury Arms.
