Case Studies

A selection of our case studies showing the scope of our experience and expertise.

Planning

Devonshire Design Framework

The practice, working with Jan Kattein Architects, was appointed by Eastbourne Homes to develop the Devonshire Design Framework (DDF), a comprehensive urban renewal strategy for Devonshire, a ward on the east side of the town. While popular as a place to live, the ward suffers significant deprivation as evidenced in overcrowded housing, worn out and illegible public realm and a low wage culture.

Urban Strategy for the River Thames

In many places along its length, the benefits of proximity to the river are under-exploited. The river has massive potential as a connector and source of pleasure. Our urban strategy puts forward a 'Pier Strategy' that identifies multiple opportunities to improve both visual and physical access to London's waterways. Individually, they change the nature, potential and quality of place in each location; collectively, they transform the relationship between the city and its waterways.

Well Street Neighbour-hood Plan

Since 2011, the practice has been acting as facilitators to a group of residents, the Neighbourhood Action Team (NAT), to develop a neighbourhood plan for the Well Street area of Hackney. Our main successes and input have been acting as interlocutor with the local authority, providing advice and guidance, signposting relevant reports and studies, producing a comprehensive evidence base to support policy development and fundraising (we have secured £10,000 towards the group’s activities).
