Squires replaces Make on £150m St John’s Wood job

Squire & Partners' proposals for 60 St John's Wood Road

Developer changes team and ratchets up units for housing scheme near Lord’s

Make Architects has been replaced by Squire & Partners for the reworking of a large-scale housing project in an exclusive part of north-west London.

Ken Shuttleworth’s practice won planning permission for the redevelopment of a 1960s sheltered housing block near Lord’s Cricket Ground in 2017 – in conjunction with Ryder Architects.

But clients Regal London and Central and Cecil Housing Trust said the Make-designed element of the two-building, 200-home scheme was “no longer viable in current market conditions and did not optimise the housing potential of the site”, which is between Lodge Road and St John’s Wood Road.
