HOK modular housing scheme gets the nod

HOK has been given planning approval for a 92-home modular housing scheme in West London.

Northolt Grange will be a 100% affordable development located on a one acre site in Northolt, in the Borough of Ealing.

Designed for the local council’s housing firm, Broadway Living, it will consist of a series of standardised stackable modular units which are intended to reduce construction time.

HOK’s London studio principal David Weatherhead said the approach provides a “new model for the delivery of high-quality, affordable and sustainable housing in London”.

The scheme will include a 30-space carpark beneath a 700 sq.metre playground, connecting directly to each of the buildings’ first floor levels.

Last week, HOK submitted plans for a refurbishment of a post-war office block in the City of London which will see 2,000 sq.metres of commercial space added to the building’s roof.

The practice has also recently unveiled its £50m proposal to redevelop Manchester Arena.
