Ultra-modern homes at 321 Portobello Road

These new homes have daring interiors of raw concrete and polished plaster, reclaimed planks and galvanised steel.

Colourful, cosmopolitan and slightly scruffy, the northern stretch of Portobello Road beyond Westway flyover has been winning new fans since designer Stella McCartney set up her fashion atelier in a former chapel in Golborne Road, heralding the neighbourhood’s “arrival”.
