Set within Wembley Park, London, Flanagan Lawrence’s Alto development is a large-scale residential development for Quintain.
Inspired by the adjacent stadium’s leading-edge design, the development forms a key part of the ambitious regeneration projects. Quintain is transforming what was a derelict brownfield site into a dynamic mixed-use neighbourhood located just 12 minutes from Central London.
Recently named Development of the Year at the 2018 RESI Awards, the Alto development has been designed as part of Quintain’s larger masterplan for the 85 acre site, which also delivers 42 acres of public realm, creating an urban oasis with pockets of green and open space. Seamlessly integrated public realm is a key feature of the scheme, which includes Elvin Gardens, and adjacent pocket parks.
Alto comprises 362 apartments across four blocks, ranging from nine to 19 storeys in height, comprising: Alto Apartments – 120 Build-to-Rent (BtR) homes; Belcanto and Pienna – 211 for sale apartments; and Vivo – 31 apartments for affordable rent and discount market sale.
The apartments, designed by FLINT, the in-house interior design team at Flanagan Lawrence, all benefit from open plan living, kitchen and dining areas with peninsula or island kitchens forming a focal point. Floor to ceiling windows maximise natural daylight and high quality of finishes, fixtures and appliances have been specified.
The stepped, framed tiers and symmetrical lines of Alto’s design establish a distinctive, considered order, and clearly respond to the internal layout.
The articulation and scale of each elevation’s facade responds to the immediate context, achieving civic presence through the use of natural stone, glass and aluminium cladding.
