Adam Khan Architects has won a two-stage contest for a new housing scheme in Harrow, north west London
The studio defeated four unnamed rivals to win the London Borough of Harrow-backed town centre project (pictured) near to Harrow-on-the-Hill train station.
Intended to generate revenue for the council which is facing £83 million worth of government cuts, the scheme will transform the Vaughan Road Car Park into new private rented sector housing and community facilities.
Studio founder Adam Khan commented: ‘We are really excited to be part of Harrow’s progressive and ambitious programme.
‘The wider challenge of making really high-quality public housing meets the local challenge of making sure infill development actually improves the condition for the neighbours.’
The studio is working with landscape architects Adams & Sutherland, community consultant Daisy Froud, structural engineer MLM and planning consultant Tibbalds on the project.
Adam Khan Architects – working with Muf architecture/art – won a separate contest for 130 mixed-tenure residential units next to Clapton Common earlier this year.
