Duggan Morris Architects and HTA Design have drawn up plans for 120 new homes and a raft of community facilities at the Aylesbury Estate in south London
The scheme is on a 1 hectare site previously home to a former Amersham community centre.
Eleanor Purser, director of regeneration for Notting Hill Housing, said: ‘Local residents really pushed our design team to create a scheme that worked for everyone.
‘Thanks to local involvement we think we’ve created a better proposal for current and future residents.’
The scheme includes a north block designed by HTA comprising 122 homes and 225m² of commercial space, plus a community facility including a library, after hours facility, plus meeting rooms.
A south block, designed by Duggan Morris, will include a health centre and an early years facility.
A multi disciplinary team led by HTA Design was appointed to masterplan the £1.5billion redevelopment of the vast estate near the Elephant & Castle in 2014.
The overall plan provides for 3,500 homes, almost doubling the existing density, and got planning permission in April last year.
Work began on the Aylesbury, one of the largest housing estates in Europe, in the mid-1960s on a 28.5ha site near Elephant & Castle. Designed by Derek Winch of Southwark council’s architects’ department, its 2,759 flats were housed in long slab blocks between four and 14 storeys high.
In 1997, Tony Blair made his first speech as Prime Minister on the Aylesbury Estate, to demonstrate his commitment to improving life for the poorest in society.
Last year, a block on the estate was occupied by a group of housing activists protesting against the demolition of the estate and the gentrification of London. The regneration of the estate has also become a rallying point for campaign group Architects for Social Housing (ASH).
