“I think your work was the catalyst we needed to think strategically about this part of Hayes” - LB Hillingdon.
We completed our urban design assessment of a strategic redevelopment site in Hayes, Hillingdon. A quick and inexpensive exercise, the study nonetheless identified some major opportunities that thus far had not been explored. We proposed a design framework that would dramatically improve connectivity and cohesion, not only between the site and the town centre, but also to the extensive area of developable land beyond. Making extensive use of 3D sketches, we demonstrated how the framework could be built out with a variety of housing types and densities, but always deliver a real sense of place.
