A walking tour around Regent's Park Estate to discuss the masterplan and designs of the new infill housing on the estate, led by architects Hilary Satchwell (Tibbalds), Alex Ely (Mae) and Matthew LLoyd (Matthew LLoyd Architects).
Built in the 1950s, Regent's Park Estate is a large post-war estate located between Regent's Park and Euston Station. In 2013, planned proposals for the HS2 railway line led to the demolition of three housing blocks and loss of 182 homes on the north eastern corner of the estate. As part of the HS2 replacement homes programme, the London Borough of Camden commissioned Tibbalds, Matthew Lloyd Architects and Mae to identify empty or underused sites in the estate and to design eight new housing blocks to accommodate displaced residents.
During this guided walk, the architects will be discussing their respective designs and the challenges and opportunities of infill housing and estate regeneration. As part of the tour, we will also talk through Camden Council's programme to upgrade the open and green spaces on the estate.
