Eastfields Estate Regeneration
We designed the masterplan in collaboration with two other architectural practices (Levitt Bernstein and Proctor & Matthews) - with whom we share a common culture, ethos and design approach - adding richness and variety to the scheme.
Built in the 1970s, the existing Estate is comprised of a perimeter building that places homes around a large central green, creating two distinct zones: inside the estate and outside the estate. Not surprisingly, this layout cuts the estate from its surroundings and creates anti-social behaviour issues. Our masterplan turns the site inside out, replacing the existing monolith building with a series of buildings of varied scale and creates a hierarchy of through-routes, combined with a more traditional street pattern to allow homes to front onto a new green heart, enabling it to be better used and more secure.
The masterplan increases density from 470 to 773 dwellings.
