Architects' proposals for Grenfell estate published

Adjaye Associates' plans to refurbish Camborne Mews on North Kensington's Lancaster West Estate

Leading architects worked with residents on proposals for Lancaster West Estate

Initial ideas for refurbishing the west London estate that had Grenfell Tower as its centrepiece have been published in a new report.

Proposals from Adjaye Associates, Cullinan Studio, Levitt Bernstein, Maccreanor Lavington, Murray John Architects and Penoyre & Prasad look at ways the Lancaster West Estate can be remodelled and improved in the wake of last year’s tragedy that claimed 72 lives.

The report, which weighs in at more than 450 pages, raises the prospect of adding a new non-combustible envelope to some of the estate’s buildings to improve their external appearance and energy efficiency, adding balconies and new basements, reconfiguring public spaces and introducing more private gardens with £15m of allocated government funding.
