Introducing Artisi Where Civic Pride Meets Dynamic Living
August, London 2023 – An intimate collection of new homes has launched in the heart of vibrant West London. Set against the backdrop of the Grade II-listed modernised Hammersmith Town Hall, new residences, Artisi comprises 99 private sale apartments. Developed by FABRICA by A2Dominion and Hammersmith & Fulham Council, homes at Artisi epitomise elegance and sophistication, setting a new benchmark for future urban living.
The inspiring rejuvenation of the wider Civic Campus showcases the extraordinary vision by the local authority and world-renowned architects RSHP. The high-quality architecture with natural and faience terracotta facades, complements the 1930s facade of the Town Hall, and gives a nod to the materiality and architectural expression of the area.
The transformed neighbourhood will offer a harmonious combination of cultural activity, commercial outlets and inclusive community life. For residents of Artisi, they will benefit from a boutique proposition nestled within a new destination that is a true showcase of the ‘Artisan’ spirit of Hammersmith.
The Future of Living: Flexibility for All
The collection of thoughtfully curated one and two bedroom apartments balance the functional requirements of modern living with innovative creativity.
Every home uniquely comprises a private balcony or terrace, with views of either the tranquil river or the bustling Civic Campus allowing homeowners to benefit from the rich heritage and unique location of the destination. Drawing inspiration from its surroundings, the interiors subtly reflect the Art Deco style of the Town Hall, and a refined counterpoint to the dynamic exteriors.
Artisi homeowners will have access to their own gym, concierge, on–site security, cycle storage and landscaped communal roof terraces ideal for alfresco hosting. Additionally, residents will also benefit from the wider retail and leisure facilities of the stunning Civic Campus.
A One–Of–A–Kind Neighbourhood Is Taking Shape
The new Civic Campus will breathe life back into this historic location, creating an inspiring destination that will instill a sense of civic pride and enrich the whole community.
The reimagined neighbourhood will offer a new five-screen cinema, concert hall and theatre, public rooftop café and sky bar, an art gallery, retail and flexible office space as well as affordable new homes for local residents. A 665 sq m public piazza named ‘Unity Square’ designed by leading landscape architects Gillespies, will be the beating heart for residents and visitors alike.
RSHP’s design responds to the needs of the local and wider community. To deliver its vision for a “ruthlessly inclusive” scheme, the team has worked closely with disabled people to ensure every aspect, surface and space has been considered for their use.
Rosie Nesbitt, Group Sales and Marketing Director at FABRICA by A2Dominion, said: “Our objective from the outset of this project was to deliver a scheme that is truly mixed-use and not driven solely by residential value. By offering a more holistic offer of amenities, culture and homes, prospective purchasers are buying into the sense of place and the true benefits of living within a scheme of this nature. We believe Civic Campus is set to become one of the capital’s most exciting new neighbourhoods and Artisi residents will have an unrivalled offer on their doorsteps.”
Mark Rintoul, Senior Associate at RSHP, said: “Architecture that is transformative, joyful, and sustainable must have Social Value and Inclusive design at its heart. Only then will we be truly designing buildings that reflect the diversity of the communities they serve. At the Hammersmith & Fulham Civic Campus, we had an opportunity to demonstrate this at scale.”
Eclectic Lifestyle and Connected Location
Residents of Artisi will have the very best of village life on their doorstep. Beyond the Civic Campus lies an eclectic neighbourhood, featuring a mix of independent restaurants and retail. Among the area’s highlights include famed Indian Zing, one of London’s most celebrated curry houses, Patisserie Sainte Anne, the renowned French bakery on King Street and thriving Hammersmith Food Market in Lyric Square, boasting the freshest farm produce and international street food.
Just a few moments’ walk away is an abundance of public parks and open spaces; from the 33-acre Ravenscourt Park boasting tennis courts and an award-winning garden centre, to the Thames Riverfront accessed via Furnivall Gardens, presenting the ideal spot for residents to unwind.
The development is suitably placed for excellent transport links, with Ravenscourt Park and Hammersmith tube stations within a ten-minute walk. For Londoners wishing to escape the city, Heathrow Airport is just a 20-minute drive away and overground trains from Olympia connect to Gatwick and Luton airports.
Artisi is within walking distance of an extensive variety of Ofsted ‘Outstanding’ schools, as well as some of London’s most prestigious independent schools, including Godolphin and Latymer, St Paul’s Girls’ and Boys’ Schools and Latymer Upper School.
