A new village nestling between the Grand Union Canal and rail transport links has facilitated a new calm community in a busy urban setting.
The scheme at High Point Village is part of the strategic regeneration of Hayes and provides a mixture of housing tenure, as well as the Staycity Aparthotel and on site leisure facilities. The site was a former scrapyard and is adjacent to Hayes and Hillingdon station. The design accommodates the new Crossrail station, providing excellent transport links to both Heathrow and central London.
The residential units are designed for both the client and the people who will ultimately live, work and enjoy the buildings in the future. Generous space standards are observed and sustainable solutions, such as the site wide CHP unit, benefit the community and the environment. Of the 576 units, 35% are either affordable or shared ownership, sizes range from one bed through to large four bed homes, 10% are capable of conversion for wheelchair use.
From an urban design perspective the scheme improves the quality and cohesion of the wider townscape, whilst within the village it creates some very interesting landscapes. Urban squares, public art, waterside promenades and a stimulating network of parks and garden spaces of different sizes, layout and character all respond to the community.
