The Pulse creates a distinctive landmark on Finchley Road, one of the main routes into London. The project, won through invited competition, comprises 56 private apartments and 54 social housing apartments and houses. Whilst they occupy different buildings, they share a richly landscaped central space accessible to all.
The private apartments enjoy large areas of glazing with balconies whilst the penthouses have generous landscaped terraces with wonderful views over London.
Through the consistent use of materials and architectural treatment, and with the shared landscaped courtyard, the private and social housing create a cohesive and highly successful development.
