Wornington Green regeneration wins design award
On 13 July 2015, our regeneration of the Wornington Green social rented estate in north Kensington won the coveted Mayor’s Design Award at the 2015 Housing Design Awards.
The Housing Design Awards are the longest running awards of their type in the country (started by Aneurin Bevan, who was Minister for Health with responsibility for housing, in 1948) and they are the only awards that sends a multidisciplinary set of judges to inspect every shortlisted development. Established and still controlled by central government, this is the awards programme which all the others aspire to be.
Our success is a great endorsement of what we’re doing in Kensington, to transform the 538-home Wornington Green estate into a new mixed community of over 1,000 homes, and, through great design and a lot of consultation with the community, creating not only wonderful new homes, but a place where people want to live. It’s very much a template for what we want to do in our regeneration projects and we are delighted that we have won.
