Regents Park Estate
Infill sites to re-provide 84 homes affected by HS2 within Camden estate
Working closely with Camden Council we designed new homes across 5 sites, all now completed, within the Regents Park Estate to replace homes due to be affected by the HS2 development.
The Estate is popular and well established, located just to the North of the Euston HS2 terminus. A feasibility study demonstrated that many residents wished to stay within the locality, so that careful consultation and sensitive design was essential in proposing appropriate buildings of sufficient capacity.
Two substantial new buildings face Hampstead Road, with balconies or winter gardens on all four corners, two further buildings are sited on Albany Street on the western boundary, as well as a third small mews site. All respond to their context in scale, character and materials.
What people say
The quality is palpable… I suppose this is the bricky ‘New London Vernacular’ but it’s a distinct cut above most of it. If all new council housing was designed to these standards, we’d be living in the New Jerusalem. Which is apt in a way, because to my mind the 1950s Regent's Park Estate was planned and built with much the same ambition.
