Metropolitan Workshop led a masterplanning study in partnership with Maccreanor Lavington Architects to renew the Westbury Estate in Lambeth, helping the borough deliver its target of 1,000 new affordable homes. The work included close collaboration with residents to inform an Urban Design Study that identified a brief and vision for the Estate, providing 334 new homes.
The new negotiated masterplan re-establishes the pre-war frontage onto Wandsworth Road, improves connections linking Wandsworth Road to the park, and creates a series of new mansion blocks lining the park edge.
The scheme was granted planning approval in January 2018, and phase 1 is currently on site.

"The consultation process has been a success - the residents, whilst initially cynical about the benefits of estate regeneration, have now come to see us as guardians of their best interests."
