Project:

Regent's Park Estate Regeneration, London

An opportunity for replacement homes to kick-start regeneration of a post-war estate.

Central Government’s plans for HS2 meant that three social housing blocks on the Regent’s Park Estate in Camden required demolition. Tibbalds worked with Camden Council to find locations for replacement homes within the estate. Our design-led masterplan approach ensured that the site selection process for the replacement homes also supported opportunities for further regeneration works in the future.

116 homes and significant public realm improvements

Tibbalds design-led masterplan approach secured planning consent for replacement homes on sites that were deliverable within the challenging timescales of HS2 and set out a vision for further investment in the future.

The Regents Park Estate is a large post-war estate located between Euston Station and Regents Park. The Estate was badly affected by Central Government’s proposals for HS2, which required the demolition of three existing housing blocks and the loss of 182 homes.

Tibbalds were appointed in 2013 to undertake a feasibility and capacity review of the estate to accommodate replacement homes for those that would be lost. Using considered analysis and masterplanning we developed a vision for the future of the estate that identified a number of sites that could be developed in the short term for replacement homes, as well as medium and long term opportunities. The short term sites were able to deliver the replacement homes in the tight timescales required by HS2 but also supported the vision for further regeneration in the future. The masterplan allowed stakeholders to see that the sites had been carefully considered as part of a longer term investment meaning strong support was received from the local community.

Detailed planning consent was secured for the replacement homes on the short term sites in 2015 where Tibbalds managed and led the large multi-disciplinary. The scheme provides 116 new homes and improved public realm and open space, the project is now complete and occupied.
