Senior Architectural Systems has delivered a stunning fenestration package for a new affordable housing development in North London.
The Williamson Heights high-rise residential scheme in Wembley, has been developed by Peabody and designed by Delta Architects. Comprising two buildings linked by a podium garden, each of the apartments feature Senior’s thermally-broken SPW600 aluminium windows and co-ordinating SPW600 aluminium doors which provide access to the individual balconies. Daylighting has also been embraced thanks to Senior’s SF52 aluminium curtain wall screens, with the main and communal entrances made safe and secure with the use of SPW501 aluminium commercial doors. Senior’s fenestration solutions have been fabricated and installed by supply chain partner Denval Co Ltd for main contractor Formation Design & Build Ltd.
The new apartment scheme, which offers properties available through the Help to Buy scheme, boasts a prime location within walking distance of Wembley Stadium Station and Wembley Park and a number of communal facilities including a cinema room and fitness suite.
As one of London’s oldest and largest housing associations, Peabody has created the new development with a focus on balancing and restoring the mental and physical wellbeing of its residents. Key to this is the combination of a vibrant and convenient inner-city location with a thoughtful design scheme that uses natural light and access to outdoor spaces. Here, Senior’s comprehensive mix of aluminium windows, doors and curtain wall systems have played a key part, with the extensive use of glazing helping to maximise both natural light and ventilation. With sleek and stylish aluminium doors providing each apartment with a seamless link to a private balcony area, residents can also enjoy access to the communal gardens and the slim sightlines of Senior’s windows and SF52 curtain wall system framing exceptional views across the city.
