Gabriel Square, St Albans

The London Road Project includes the design and construction of 80 residential houses and apartments around a raised central courtyard, with parking below and a public square and garden above.

  • Procurement:Design and Build
  • Client:Meyer Bergman
  • Concept Architect:Michael Aukett Architects
  • Working Drawings Architect:HTA
  • Agent:Stace

The 80 houses and apartments are arranged in four long terraces around the square, with two smaller blocks on London Road and Alma Road. The tenure mix includes 52 town houses (three to five bedrooms), 16 maisonettes (two to three bedrooms) and 12 apartments (one to three bedrooms).

The existing site is a bowl shape, requiring excavation to regularize the lower ground floor but allowing near-level pedestrian access across the podium, from all sides.

The development also includes works to part demolish and rebuild one family home at 25H Alma Road.
