Organisations back first National Housing Design Audit


With the drive to deliver more homes across the country, has come a “loud call for those developments to be of a high standard of design in order to deliver high quality, liveable and sustainable environments for residents,” from a range of organisations which are combining to back the what’s being hailed as the first national housing design audit. The Place Alliance (UCL) has joined


forces with the Campaign to Protect Rural England (CPRE), with support from the Home Builders Federation, Urban Design Group, Civic Voice, Academy of Urbanism, Design Council, UK Green Building Council, and Institute for Highways and Transportation, to produce the national housing design audit. The work is also supported by professional input from Arup, JTP, Spawforths and URBED and a “network of specially trained volunteers” across the country. The audit will be a “systematic


approach to assessing the design quality of the external residential environment,” said the Place Alliance/CPRE. The group said it will assess at least 100 large-scale developments across England and “provide enough data for comparisons to be made between regions and different approaches to the delivery of new housing.” Using “broadly the same


methodology as earlier housing design audits conducted between 2004 and 2007,” the intention is “to look back and see how the design of housing developments has changed over the last decade.” It will also provide a baseline against which to measure progress on place-making in new housing development going forward. The audit will be completed in the


autumn and will feed into the work of the Government’s Building Better, Building Beautiful Commission.


MIXED USE


Pilbrow & Partners wins Old Kent road regeneration


London Borough of Southwark has approved plans by architects Pilbrow & Partners for a mixed-use regeneration scheme on Old Kent Road, on behalf of Strathclyde Pension Fund. The proposal comprises 724 residential units – 35 per cent being affordable – across six buildings ranging from nine to 48 storeys, as well as a 195- room hotel, retail development and a cinema. Fred Pilbrow, senior founding partner at Pilbrow & Partners, said, “Set adjacent to the future Bakerloo Line station and facing Burgess Park, the site is a natural heart to the new town centre proposed in the Southwark Area Action Plan. Our vision is to create a vibrant and inclusive urban quarter around a new public space, which

will act as the catalyst for the wider regeneration of the Old Kent Road. We are very pleased the scheme was approved unanimously by Southwark.” The proposals “respond to the existing and emerging characteristics of one of London’s most dynamic districts,” said the architects. “Well-defined urban blocks underpin a robust and clear sequence of new public routes and spaces. This will greatly improve connectivity within the opportunity area, with the development becoming an important gateway between the station and the new public square at the heart of the neighbourhood.” They added: “These spaces are brought to life by the ground-floor frontages of the new buildings and will transform the currently unwelcoming pedestrian environment.” A “vibrant polychromatic hotel facade” on the Old Kent Road forms a visual gateway to the new district, aiding wayfinding to the new underground station. A grand lobby, a cafe and co-working spaces at the ground floor create a welcoming entrance to the hotel. A roof level sky bar will have “panoramic” views of the adjacent park.
