We provided advice on all aspects of Daylight & Sunlight for the redevelopment of Agar Grove.
The masterplan for this site in Camden will provide 493 affordable homes with energy performance of the proposed accomodation a high priority.
It is the largest of Camden Council’s community investment projects, and once complete will be the largest Passivhaus scheme in the UK with a predicted 90 per cent reduction in energy bills.
Agar Grove is already a pleasant place to live, but the existing layout of the estate does not compare well to today’s principles of good design. It is inefficient, out-dated and disconnected from the wider city.
Hawkins\Brown prepared the masterplan for the redevelopment. The masterplan is based upon the traditional concept of ‘streets and squares’ with an emphasis on buildings which have front doors at street level, creating livable spaces between them, and allowing people to move across, through and within the site.
The overarching desire is to create a place where people want to live, and contributes positively to the surrounding area.
Lulworth House will be retained, stripped back to the existing structure and intensively refurbished. The concrete structure in the building represents a significant amount of embodied carbon from its manufacture and retaining it for retrofitting is a large part of the sustainability strategy for the Agar Grove project.
The proposed scheme was the overall winner on the New London Awards 2019.
We advised on all aspects of Daylight & Sunlight to support the planning application for Agar Grove.
