Llewelyn Davies and Yeang join forces in Essex

  • Comment
Llewelyn Davies has teamed up with internationally renowned architect Ken Yeang to work on the new Essex Design Initiative.

Commissioned by Essex County Council, the East of England Development Agency and CABE, the scheme has been set up to encourage innovative 'architectural responses' to the massive housing challenges facing the county.

The initiative will also promote higher-density, mixed-use development, in a bid to help Essex find space for 110,000 new homes by 2020.

In addition, a series of workshops featuring Yeang and Llewelyn Davies director Patrick Clarke will form the basis of the new 'Urban Place Supplement' to the Essex Design Guide. First published in 1973, the guide was last updated in 1997, and the latest handbook will be released later in the year.

Meanwhile, Llewelyn Davies is working with Yeang on a number of other serious initiatives, including some 'green schemes', which are expected to be unveiled towards the end of June.
