Wembley Park is changing. Over the past five years, there has been over 400,000sqm of new development set among new parks and public realm. Beton and The Hive are the latest additions at the heart of Quintain’s masterplan.
Location Wembley Park, London
Quintain appointed us to design two neighbouring ‘sister’ buildings within the Wembley Park masterplan – Beton and The Hive – that share a common language but celebrate their different uses. 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.
Beton has created 150 new studio, one and two-bedroom homes for rent at the heart of the masterplan with a unique raw concrete interior aesthetic.
The Hive is the first office building completed as part of the masterplan and offers 115,000 sqft of low-carbon, highly flexible office space (and 10,000 sqft of retail).
