Haworth Tompkins to design housing beneath Trellick Tower

  • Comment

Haworth Tompkins has been appointed to design a new housing scheme at the foot of Erno Goldfinger’s Trellick Tower

The project, drawn by the 2014 Stirling Prize-shortlisted practice for the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea, will include 100 new homes, of which half will be affordable.  

The 8,500m2 site at the bottom of the grade II*-listed Brutalist tower includes two council-owned plots which formed part of Goldfinger’s original masterplan.

One has been used for car parking since an elderly people’s home on the site was demolished in 2008, and the other, immediately below the tower, includes pedestrian walkways, stairs and basement car parking.

Deputy leader of the council, Rock Feilding-Mellen, said: ‘This is an important scheme for us, on one of the very few brownfield sites in the borough. We want new homes, we want regeneration and we want to respect the iconic Trellick Tower.’

A spokesperson for Haworth Tompkins, added: ‘We look forward to working closely with the local community, RBKC and special interest groups to develop the design solutions, which will preserve and enhance the setting of this important landmark, whilst creating new homes and open spaces. The new development will improve the connectivity across the site, reflect the richness and diversity of the local community and contribute to the wider regeneration of North Kensington.’
