The Kings Crescent Estate is typical of many 1970s estates that are isolated from the surrounding London townscape and excluded from the wider public realm.
The approved masterplan benefited from a high level of community engagement with a strong focus on integrating a refurbishment strategy with new build elements to create a new sense of identity and vitality. By connecting new streets into the local townscape and public life, the masterplan purposefully avoided re-establishing an estate character and is characterised by new, beautifully landscaped residential courtyards and an open aspect towards Clissold Park.
RICS: Highly Commendable
