Madeley Road commended at Ealing Civic Society Awards
Last updated - 13 November 2017
The development, which comprises seven buildings in Madeley Road and Hanger Lane, was one of the eight schemes shortlisted that impressed judges based on design, contribution to the landscape, energy efficiency, good pedestrian access and the re-use of materials.
Birsen Ahmet, Genesis Housing Association Project Manager accepted the award, and was joined by colleagues from Genesis, Bugler Developments and Living Architects. She said: “these colleagues have all been central to realising the vision for this beautiful flagship development”.
The redevelopment of Madeley Road and Hanger Lane houses was completed in summer 2017. The mixed tenure development includes social rented homes, market rent, shared ownership homes and private and communal space.
The scheme was designed in close consultation with the Civic Society and community to ensure it stayed architecturally in keeping with the area. The Edwardian facades on Madeley Road were retained and traditional materials were used on external elevation such as bricks, vertical tiles and timber windows, creating a stunning mixture of old and new architecture.
In September, Genesis celebrated the completion of Madeley Road with a special stakeholder event, which also featured the unveiling of a plaque in memory of Diane Spencer, a Genesis Property manager who lived locally.
Birsen Ahmet said: “It was wonderful to have Madeley Road recognised again and to receive this award. There were a lot of people who said that when they walk past Madeley they are very pleased with how it looks and they have commended Genesis and Bugler.”
