A Taste Of Hollywood Glamour At Denham Film Studios Residential Development

17.09.18

Buyers have the chance to snap up some Hollywood glamour with a home in a former film studio - which has been transformed into a £120 million Art Deco and movie inspired residential address.

Denham Film Studios, which played host to some of the world’s top directors including Stanley Kubrick and Steven Spielberg as they cut their blockbuster hits, is now a top residential address with 224 converted and newly built homes, including 154 apartments and 70 houses.

Developer Weston Homes has been working for more than three-years on the groundbreaking project, which not only has brought a new lease of life to the building, but has preserved the history of the venue as part of the redevelopment and honored the incredible movies that were processed there.

This month, the developer unveiled a series of movie themed glass sculptures set in a landscaped piazza known as Celluloid Plaza, a new Art Deco atrium and launched new phase of family houses at the Denham Film Studios providing four and five bedroom homes. The launch was hosted by Bob Weston, Chairman and CEO of Weston Homes, and daughter of renowned filmmaker Stanley Kubrick, Katharina Kubrick.

The glass sculptures in Celluloid Plaza celebrate iconic images taken from the movies of legendry Hollywood film director Stanley Kubrick including stills from his movies 2001: A Space Odyssey (1968), The Shining (1980) and Full Metal Jacket (1987). Outside seating and tree/green planters sit alongside the sculptures so that residents and visitors can enjoy and spend time in the piazza.

The new Art Deco atrium is located within the restored Grade II listed former studio HQ and laboratory building designed by Walter Gropius. Now known as Korda House, after Alexander Korda, founder of the film studios, the 6,200 square metre, three storey white render building now contains 49 apartments.

The atrium is a triple height space, boasting a water feature on the ground level and a glass roof which allows natural light to cascade into the atrium.

“The opening of Celluloid Plaza and the atrium at Denham is part of the evolution of the former studios into a vibrant new residential address, inhabited by people, homes and movie-themed amenities,” says Bob Weston, Chairman and CEO of Weston Homes. “The plaza’s glass sculptures pay tribute to Stanley Kubrick, a phenomenal director who has such strong ties to Denham. Through his films, Stanley Kubrick has had a lasting impact on our culture and it’s therefore highly fitting that the plaza commemorates his work at the site where so many of his movies were completed.”

“I’m sure dad would be pleased to know that people will be able to sit in Celluloid Plaza alongside images from his movies and it’s the type of space where millennials and future generations who are unfamiliar with his movies may be inspired to seek out his films and become the next generation of Stanley Kubrick fans,” adds Katharina Kubrick, Stanley Kubrick's daughter.

Since the development’s launch in February 2017, more than 85% of the project’s 154 apartments have been successfully sold. Apartment prices start from £405,000 for a two bedroom apartment and from £510,000 for a three bedroom apartment.

House prices start from £699,995 for a four bedroom house with private gardens, garage and driveway parking.
