Matthew Lloyd Architects and Mae have won planning for 116 homes across Camden which will replace those lost due to the new HS2 line
The housing is being funding by HS2 and will be built on eight sites within the Regent’s Park Estate, just north of Euston Station where the high speed rail link is set to terminate.
The schemes range in height from three to eleven storeys.
Five of the developments - creating a total of 84 homes - have been designed by Matthew Lloyd Architects. The practice’s commission includes a pair of buildings on Hampstead Road housing commercial units at ground level.
A further 32 homes and a community centre have been designed by Mae and are spread across three sites at Varndell Street, Redhill Street, and Robert Street.
Matthew Lloyd of Matthew Lloyd Architects, said: ‘The task of designing appropriate and contextual replacement housing in and around the existing Regents Park Estate has been a very satisfying challenge.
‘It was a pleasure collaborating with Mæ, and working closely with Camden and local residents, to achieve this result’.
Alex Ely of Mæ, added: ‘HS2 risks fragmenting a well-established community on the Regent’s Park Estate. As a team we have worked hard with the London Borough of Camden to find opportunities to create well designed infill housing across the estate to rehouse displaced residents allowing them to remain in their community.’
