PRP and Rick Mather win first phase of Brent regeneration
Brent Council has begun assembling teams to work on the initial phases of a regeneration plan which will see 3,000 homes built in the north-west London borough in the coming years.
The 10-year plan will see 30 sites redeveloped, and PRP Architects has been appointed masterplanner on the first phase of the deal in South Kilburn.
Working with Rick Mather Architects, the team will draw up plans for 365 new homes. The first phase comprises a 165-home development designed by PRP and a 200-home project designed by Rick Mather.
The council has already hired Alison Brooks Architects and Lifschutz Davidson Sandilands to work on the second phase.
PRP director Brendan Kilpatrick said: “All of the architects so far have been selected from a Homes & Communities Agency panel through mini-competitions, and I expect work on the later phases will progress in a similar way.”
Detailed planning applications are due to be submitted to the council in January.
