Firm to work with architects Mae and Grant Associates on design for Camden council

Agar Grove

Architect Hawkins Brown has been appointed to develop plans for a £55m housing regeneration project in Camden.

The firm will work with fellow architects Mae and Grant Associates to design a 360 home development at the Agar Grove Estate for Camden council.

Consultant EC Harris and engineers Max Fordham and Peter Brett Associates will also help develop the plans for the project.

A total 112 homes will be demolished at the 1960s housing estate to make way for the new housing.

A range of housing types will be provided including terraced houses, maisonettes and flats.

Seth Rutt, partner at Hawkins Brown said the design would be informed by Camden “real commitment to sustainability - both environmentally and socially”.

He said: “The client is keen to build on ‘fabric first’ principles to exceed legislation and tackle fuel poverty. Camden are also committed to keeping the existing community on site, which we will be doing with a phased, single decant - residents will be able to watch their new homes being built - and then move in.”
