The Stonebridge Hillside Hub is a key scheme in the continuing regeneration of the Stonebridge Estate in West London. It is a major resource for the 4,000 strong culturallydiverse local community; it aims to bring people together, improve local health, enable educational, leisure and community initiatives, encourage investment in the local housing market, provide much-needed retail space and give a new focus to a previously deprived part of the borough.
The mixed-use building provides a health centre, a community centre, a convenience store, a café, open-market and shared-ownership apartments, private car parking, a garden and a public piazza. Extensive consultation with the users and the local community was a hallmark of this scheme’s development.

Arcadia Nursery was created to provide early-years education for children of university staff, students and the general public and caters for up to 113 children ranging in age from six weeks to five years.
The building is the UK sales and marketing office of The VELUX Company, the Danish manufacturer of windows and roof-lights. According to the client’s brief, the design was to be ‘a practical demonstration of VELUX products in an inspirational setting’.
