Trio of architects chosen for Nightingale Estate overhaul

  • Comment

Karakusevic Carson, Henley Halebrown Rorrison and Stephen Taylor Architects have been picked to work on the regeneration of the Nightingale Estate in Hackney

The three London-based practices have been appointed to draw up a masterplan for the next phase of the east London estate’s overhaul.

This is the third stage of the estate’s revamp. Earlier phases have included the demolition of four towers, the construction of 275 new affordable homes, and the refurbishment of 397 council homes.

Nicholas Ecob, associate at Karakusevic Carson Architects, said: ‘The Nightingale Estate offers a unique opportunity to deliver community-led regeneration.’

Ken Rorrison, principle at Henley Halebrown Rorrison, commented: ‘We are very interested in the wider context of the Nightingale Estate. There is great potential through thoughtful design to use the public realm as a way to bring parts of the community together. We feel the new interventions are about creating positive social cohesion through architecture.’

Sam Holden, associate at Stephen Taylor Architects, added: ‘We are excited to be contributing to this important regeneration project, along with the Nightingale Residents, Karakusevic Carson Architects, Henley Halebrown Rorrison Architects and Hackney Council, and we look forward to working collaboratively to deliver a successful piece of city.’

Townshend Landscape Architects has also been appointed to design the landscape and public realm elements of the scheme.

The architects will submit a planning application for the development towards the end of 2015.
