HTA has been involved in the Clapham Park Regeneration Project in the London Borough of Lambeth since 2007. The masterplan proposal for the Heritage Quarter of Clapham Park sets out the refurbishment for 700 homes with small infill sites indentified for new development. Together with Clapham Park Homes and Durkan Limited, HTA have delivered a comprehensive refurbishment programme, including internal modernisation, new lifts and secure entrances for the retained blocks and associated environmental improvements to the external areas with the aim to create an attractive sustainable urban living environment.
The external areas were reviewed in relation to access arrangements, parking requirements and relevant open space standards. They were redesigned to create desirable and inclusive spaces that encourage activity and strengthen the sense of community for current and future residents. Increasing security and safety within the estate was a key consideration within the design process and has been addressed in parts by increasing overlooking, providing secure front boundaries and a comprehensive lighting strategy.
