Belle Vue Hampstead
Set in the green spaces of Hampstead Green, Belle Vue by Pegasus Life provides 60 luxury apartments for the over 60’s in a convenient location for Central London.
The complex façade design features include steel framing systems backing to hand-laid brickwork in feature bonds. An intricate mechanically-fixed brick slip rain-screen was created with precast panelling, precast sills and banding, loggia balconies, composite punch windows and stick curtain walling.
E H Smith worked closely with the brickworks and their UK representatives, Bespoke Brick, to ensure a consistent blend was delivered. Morris + Co were meticulous in choosing the brick with the right amount of weathering and they were able to facilitate this. The two red tumbled bricks included one with 60% special pigmented slurry and one with 90%.
The brickwork was completed by Galostar to an exceptionally high standard which dovetails the traditionally laid bricks with the blick slip elements.
We are very proud to be involved in this challenging project, which looks fantastic.
