Muf are part of a team to re-work an existing masterplan for the redevelopment of the Kings Cresent housing estate, comprising both renovation of
existing housing stock and new-built. A legible public realm design ties the estate into its wider setting, through a clear urban form designed as an invitation for social exchange.
muf worked with the London Wildlife Trust and initiated a successful application for GLA Pocket Park funding to bring forward construction of an orchard on the perimeter of the site to further link the estate with adjoining residents.
The central route is partially pedestrianised, allowing both current and future residents to permanently reclaim the road as a meeting place for all.
muf worked closely with residents to retain two existing community gardens within the proposed layout of the estate, and engaged with local children of all ages to develop inter-generational meeting spaces.
