The Bourne Estate
The Bourne Estate wins Camden Design Award 2017
Both blocks are a highly intelligent and mature response to the existing Edwardian architecture, with a generosity in the detailing of the communal entrances that is equivalent to the Edwardian spaces and will last 100 years. It is civic in a way that shows respect for the ideology of that time. Window seats in entrance halls create moments of sociability and short, wide deck access breeds community and keeps circulation open to the elements. These modern buildings enrich rather than dilute the strong existing character of the Estate.
