PRP designs loft style living for Reading


HANDMADE BY


Steve © Forbes Massie


PRP and housing association L&Q have been granted planning consent by Reading Borough Council for Kenavon Drive, a new residential quarter on the banks of the River Kennet. Occupying the site of the former Huntley & Palmers Biscuit factory – a grand Victorian complex almost wholly demolished in 1978 – the scheme will employ a variety of traditional brick techniques and feature saw-tooth roofs as a contemporary refer- ence to the industrial buildings that once stood on the site. The use of historically inspired abstracted forms and techniques


will, according to the architects, “create a contemporary architec- tural language that reflects the site’s manufacturing past as well as the character of neighbouring listed buildings in the area.” Kenavon Drive provides 765 homes for residents. The homes, of


which 157 are affordable for local people, will contribute to L&Q’s plan to enable the delivery of 100,000 homes nationally over the next 10 years. The development will feature two new public squares and a new ‘linear park’, as well as a cafe, a restau- rant, retail and flexible employment space for local workers. PRP’s landscape team has proposed a series of integrated streets and spaces for the scheme, that include a riverside promenade leading to a new square overlooking the river. The square features terraced seating, with new trees, lawns and fountains. Cafes and a restaurant will line the square, offering alfresco dining in a riverfront setting. Craig Sheach, director, PRP said: “We were inspired by Reading’s


history, the site and L&Q’s aspirations for the project and have developed a design which we believe is deeply rooted in its place, drawing inspiration from the former site’s industrial character. When delivered, the scheme will enhance the eastern quarter of Reading and provide residents and locals with a well-connected, walkable neighbourhood and place to enjoy a leisurely moment by the water – something that doesn’t happen currently at this part of the river.
