Beton has created 150 new studio, one and two-bedroom homes for rent at the heart of the masterplan with views over Wembley Stadium and its iconic arch.
As the Architect and Interior Designer, our aim was to create a unique interior identity to ensure that Beton stands out in the competitive build-to-rent market. Leaving the concrete columns and soffits exposed in the living spaces create a striking aesthetic, while high ceilings and floor-to-ceiling windows let light flood in. Residents also have access to a shared lounge with pool table, arcade machine, cinema room and co-working space, alongside a comprehensive bike workshop.
The building sits alongside The Hive, a 115,000sqft flexible office building, at the heart of Quintain's Wembley Park masterplan. The two buildings are clad in a distinctive glazed brick, have identically proportioned elevations and share the same approach to materials and detailing.
The raw, natural palette of materials chosen for both buildings gives them a strong civic presence and character, with the seven-metre tall glazing to the ground floor commercial spaces providing an animated new frontage to Wembley Park Boulevard.
Winners will be announced at the Building Awards ceremony on 2 November.
