Kings Crescent Estate wins RIBA National Award

21 Jun 2018

Kings Crescent Estate represents an alternative model to large‑scale estate regeneration, demolition and rebuild. Informed by an extensive engagement programme with residents and strong collaboration with Hackney Council, the project is an example of future local‑authority housing.

New and refurbished buildings are integrated to form robust courtyard blocks, combined with communal courtyard gardens and play spaces. The three new buildings which vary in height between 5 and 12 storeys are constructed from a simple palette of brick, concrete, steel and timber.
