Altered Estates

London’s failure to keep up with the demand for additional homes has renewed interest in regenerating existing housing estates – to not only increase the quantity of homes but also improve the quality.

The issue is increasingly politicised and polarised, with those on one hand who think the wishes of existing residents are of the utmost priority and those on the other who believe public land should be used to create more homes to widen access to homeownership. We believe that regeneration can and should satisfy both camps.

We created this report in collaboration with three other architectural practices (HTA, PRP and PTE) to offer recommendations on how to reconcile competing interests in estate regeneration.
