Copley Close, Ealing

Copley Close is a 1km long estate comprising of 637 dwellings. Hunters are refurbishing most of the existing buildings and public realm, and constructing new homes, community and retail facilities as discreet infills between existing buildings and significant new residential sites fronting the estate. Proposals include demolition of 76 homes, construction of 205 new homes, and extensive refurbishment of over 500 homes.

Hunters are refurbishing where possible and only if impractical will demolish current housing. The aim is to keep the existing number of affordable homes, add other tenures including private ownership and designing in community areas with retail and leisure. The new build is to be interspersed with existing homes to enhance the street scape and a weight placed on good playspace, family spaces, appropriate massing and daylight analysis.

Winner of Best Conceptual Project at the 2014 London Planning Awards.
