Breaking the Europan curse

  • Comment
Witherford Watson Mann (WWM) has become the first practice in the UK to land outline planning permission for a winning Europan project.

But only a fool would put money on the practice ending the UK’s disastrously unproductive 14-year-long flirtation with the Europe-wide housing contest.

WWM’s 122-home scheme, part of the regeneration of the concrete 1960s Stonebridge estate in north-west London,
has already endured a two-year rollercoaster ride which has seen both the brief and site change.

And despite drawing up detailed proposals and carrying out extensive public consultation, the victors of the 2006 CABE-organised Europan 8 contest are facing yet more uncertainty.
