Beachcroft House provides a state-of-the art 84-bed care home for Westminster City Council along with 31 private sale apartments for Durkan.
Located on a prestigious street in Maida Vale, on the edge of a conservation area and in close proximity to the BBC studios, the site presented many constraints. The development has been sensitively designed to ‘repair’ the urban grain with an exciting architectural response which includes the provision of a wonderful new community resource / activity space. Both buildings have attractive external spaces including podium gardens and sheltered courtyards.
The building's elevations reference the rhythm and finishes of the Victorian houses found in the Maida Vale Conservation Area and feature high-quality brick and stone detailing to integrate the new development seamlessly with the surrounding vernacular.
