Avondale Square is an 18 unit social housing scheme with new community centre and estates office. Following the demolition of the existing disused community centre, this new seven storey brick building with its colourful private recessed balconies will pop up in the demolished buildings place.
This clean, crisply detailed brick box will look simple and beautiful from the outside. Private balconies and living spaces face the South East maximizing the sunlight available into each apartment. This simple clean façade has been achieved because the internal layouts work hard with the proportions of the site. The units receive dual aspect daylighting in order to comply with the Mayor of London standards.
Midwest redesigned the building, using precast vertical elements and insitu RC slabs. The re design proved to be successful in reducing the amount of deliveries to a very tight sight, there was also benefits to the main contractor on the overall programme.
