Belle Vue, London – Projects
- Mass Housing
- Pegasus Life
Belle Vue is a high quality residential development for senior living in Hampstead that Elliott Wood worked on with Pegasus Life and Morris+Company.
On a steeply sloping site with a hospital on one side and a school on the other, this was a challenging project, particularly given the onerous requirements for Basement Impact Assessments from Camden.
A double storey basement to allow for parking was proposed and constructed using contiguous piles around the perimeter.
A concrete frame was adopted following numerous option studies, including pre-cast concrete, as the most suitable solution due to access restrictions and risk mitigation.
The brick facade consists of a complex geometry of brick chamfered returns which involved considerable investigation to establish the most appropriate method of construction.
