Award winning residential developer Weston Homes have now opened their development at the famous Denham Film Laboratories in Buckinghamshire, originally part of the Denham Film Studios - where the movies of numerous Oscar winning films were processed and first screened to their directors.
The Denham Film Studios provide 224 converted and newly built homes; including 154 one, two and three bedroom apartments and 70 four and five bedroom family townhouses. The project is highly inclusive, providing private homes for sale, ranging from one bed starter homes up to large five bedroom executive houses, complete with affordable housing of varying tenure.
Reflecting the film studio history of the site, there will be movie themed public artwork in the grounds. Highly original and innovative, the new public artwork will take the form of large format plates of glass (each circa 1.6 metres high by 4 metres long) which will be etched with scenes from the famous movies produced at the film studios. The etched glass will be backlit so that they can be illuminated at night, providing highly striking movie themed artwork for residents and visitors to enjoy.
Within the converted and new homes will be Weston Homes hallmark state-of-the-art specification including designer fully fitted kitchens, spacious stone paneled bathroom suites, stylish living rooms and luxurious bedrooms. The result will be new homes that combine history with all the facilities required for modern living.
Bob Weston, Chairman & Chief Executive Officer of Weston Homes said: “For almost 80 years the Denham Film Studios played a central role in the history of Hollywood and British movie making. With its iconic Art Deco centerpiece, the retained and restored cinema once used by Hollywood directors and its illustrious history this is without doubt the most exciting, glamorous and unique restoration projects Weston Homes has undertaken to date. Our vision at the Denham Film Studios is to create an Art Deco and movie inspired residential address within easy commuting distance of London via rail or road.”
