Urban Design and Masterplanning Category
The role of the landscape architect was central to developing the vision. A Green Infrastructure led approach underpinned the masterplan from the outset. HTA’s Landscape and Urban Design team successfully collaborated with four architectural teams, stakeholders and residents to deliver the vision to redevelop the Aylesbury Estate.
The Landscape team led, shaped and steered this vision as well as the technical delivery across three phases of the development including the winning bid, outline planning approval and detailed design of the first phase of 880 homes. The scope of the LA team was broad; a key member of the lead design team, instrumental in challenging the existing AAP, visioning, consultation with stakeholders, negotiations with planners, stewarding the arboricultural strategy, establishing the placemaking strategy, collaborating with multiple architects, and negotiating approvals with Southwark’s highways team.
