Kings Crescent Phase 1
London
2012–2017

Kings Crescent is an exemplary council-led estate regeneration scheme that combines high quality new housing with the meaningful transformation of existing buildings, addressing the disparity between ‘us’ and ‘them’. The masterplan was developed in collaboration with Karakusevic Carson Architects and Muf Architecture/Art. Phase 1 was completed in 2017, and we are currently working on phase 2.
