Kingsbridge 12.19

This is the first phase of a huge redevelopment of the infamous Gascoigne Estate, one of the top entries on Google simply reads “I’ve been robbed here multiple times.”

These images are from a recent commission by Allies and Morrisson to show their work at the new Kingsbridge Estate which is phase one of the overall masterplan. As well as looking at the housing in relationship to the estate in its current condition the aim was to show the relationship to context and illustrate ideas such as the reintegration with the surrounding Edwardian Terraces and the animated gable ends which provide an ‘animated’ rather than closed facade to the street.

Fortunately I wasn’t robbed.
