A management company overseeing the rental of more than 3,250 apartments in Wembley Park has shared the first look at its next development – Repton Gardens.
As the company’s tenth rental building in Wembley Park, Repton Gardens is also its described as its ‘most sustainable, with 396 apartments offering nature-inspired accommodation.
Sustainability features include rainwater harvesting, low-flow showers, toilets and taps and furnishings that prioritise recycling, reusability and with minimal delivery miles. Removal of waste has been designed to encourage recycling with an ‘Envac’ waste and recycling system on every floor. Envac is an innovative automated waste collection and sorting system that delivers cleaner, healthier urban environments. It supports increased recycling levels and reduces the number of vehicles needed to remove refuse and recycling thanks to an extensive underground pipe network.
Ranging in size from studios to four-bedroom homes designed for families and sharers, the apartments at Repton Gardens come in two colour palettes: ‘nature’ and ‘garden’. Browns, greens and greys abound, with textures used to add to the natural feel. Biophilic design brings nature indoors, with extensive planting used to enhance air quality and well-being.
Out in the podium garden, banked earthworks allow for the inclusion of larger trees, for the benefit of insects and birds, with lawned areas, two playparks and hireable BBQ/dining areas making the space particularly versatile. The podium garden, with its extensive greenery, is the epicentre of Repton Gardens, with the development’s three buildings – Birch House, Cherry House and Aspen House. The extensive shared social spaces also front onto the gardens, with terraces incorporating a range of seating connecting the indoor and outdoor areas.
Inside, the club room features a pool table, a bar with wine and beer on tap, soft seating and a TV area. There is a 1,150-square-foot gym overlooking the podium, while Repton Gardens also provides a work-from-home suite.
In total, Repton Gardens provides 40 different layout choices, including some homes with dedicated home working areas and others with half-bedrooms, popular in other Quintain Living buildings for activities like morning yoga.
