Grant Associates is part of winning bid in £55m Camden Town redevelopment

Bath-based landscape architects Grant Associates has won a bid to work on the £55 million Agar Grove Estate redevelopment in Camden, London.

Working as part of a team led by Hawkins\Brown and Mae they will work with local residents on the project, part of Camden Council’s Community Investment Programme which has set high standards, including sustainability standards and energy efficiency.

The large scale building project will replace a 249-home Modernist social housing estate built in 1966 with a mixed use scheme of around 500 homes and an extended series of connected green spaces. In addition some houses will have gardens, and flats balconies.

Director Peter Chmiel said: "The project will provide the residents exemplar housing with an extended network of traffic calmed streets and green garden spaces which will bring play, sensory delight and contact with nature into the heart of the estate."

A multi-disciplinary team led by EC Harris, including services engineer Max Fordham and structural engineer Peter Brett Associates will work alongside Hawkins\Brown, Mae and Grant Associates.  

The project follows on from success earlier this year with another central London council. Westminster Council appointed Grant Associates to redesign Church Street in Paddington Green as a climate change-adapted liveable neighbourhood.
