Located in the heart of Wembley Park, NW08 is a contemporary residential development which sits between Olympic Way and Page Place. With 174 residential units, NW08 continues the work of Quintain and Flanagan Lawrence on the ongoing regeneration of the Wembley area, and celebrates the importance of its historic context. This tenure-blind building comprises 108 Build to Rent units and 66 Affordable units which have separate entrances at ground floor level.
NW08 benefits from direct views to the stadium, and the architectural articulation maximises the opportunity provided by this context. The massing places volumes of accommodation between shifted façade planes to create a dynamic form with increased views and roof terraces. Large, projecting balconies on the southern elevation provide dramatic views to the stadium, and tall vertical recesses have been carved into the thick blade walls to provide locations for windows and balconies.
On the upper roof level, hard and soft landscaped amenity space, with panoramic views towards Wembley Stadium and across London, can be enjoyed by residents. Play space for children and landscaped gardens are provided on the podium which overlooks Olympic Way.
Retail space at ground level faces onto the busy Olympic Way to the east and a quiet pedestrianized street to the west, providing opportunities for residents to meet and enjoy restaurants, cafes and amenities in a delightful landscape street scene, further reinforcing Wembley Park as a destination and helping to create a living community.
