Building from Garden

Brondesbury Park

Through a full refurbishment and extension, this 1950s hostel has been transformed into a modern, inspiring co-living development. Completed in 2024, the revitalised building now accommodates 159 studio units together with co-working spaces and libraries, lounges and dining areas, a gym, a cinema and games rooms.

Shared sitting area

Working closely with Dandi Living, Integration was responsible for the full building services and environmental design scope.

Featuring a large solar array, the scheme additionally benefits from an innovative heat pump system for domestic hot water and space heating, using ultra-low impact refrigerants.

Bed Up

Flexible energy use was a key strategy for this development, employing large-capacity thermal stores to reduce operational costs and carbon. We are currently carrying out long-term energy use performance monitoring as part of the Post Occupancy Evaluation.

Bed Down

The positioning of the heat pumps on the ground floor was carefully considered to maximise roof space, allowing for increased amenity areas to enhance occupant wellbeing. With the pumps located in close proximity to the studio units, the system was designed to ensure high acoustic performance.

Pool Table

With our electrical engineers managing the existing electrical substation, we were able to keep this operational while the new substation was completed, allowing for a swift transition upon completion.

Co working

Seamlessly and efficiently integrating the new elements within the existing structure was a key driver in the success of this project, ensuring the quality and timely delivery of an integrated solution. This was achieved through careful 3D coordination, with the creation of a highly detailed BIM model.

Full Building from courtyard

We are delighted with the final scheme at the Brondesbury Road, which combines exceptional occupant comfort and high quality finishes with very low embodied carbon and operational carbon emissions.
