The Bacton Estate goes on site

28 Apr 2014

The Bacton Estate goes on site! 

Phase 1 of 69 homes has started. The phase consists of 40 socially rented properties and 29 for market sale to help cross subsidy.

The first phase creates the vital re-provision homes to allow phase 2 to proceed.

We have worked closely with the residents and Camden to create a scheme which meets the needs of the local community but is also viable as part of the London Borough of Camden’s wider regeneration programme. The project utilises cross laminated timber and high quality brickwork. A row of 22 townhouses and maisonettes will be some of the best socially rented properties in London with generous space standards and shared gardens.

The scheme was a major part of the portfolio that helped KCA win the prestigious Housing Architect of the Year in 2013.
