Derwent Yard, Northfields
The development is located in Northfields, within the London Borough of Ealing. It comprises demolition of the existing disused warehouse and construction of a residential scheme containing five high-quality units. The scheme is a result of extensive consultation with Ealing Council. Designed by Jin + Associates, it blends well within the local context and has been particularly informed by the need to minimise adverse daylight and sunlight effects to the neighbouring terraced properties and its rear gardens.
BLDA Consultancy provided comprehensive daylight and sunlight advice, which included producing a massing envelope which is acceptable in the context of the industry guidance. The ‘health check’ exercise informed the final design, which led to a full assessment and report to accompany the planning application submission. We have been also providing stratrgic rights of light assistance to the client.
