New London Architecture Awards 2018 Masterplan & Area Strategies winner.
Andover is Islington's largest estate with nearly 1100 homes. The estate has a strong framework of public open spaces and connecting walks, lined with mature trees, but many spaces are in need of improvements to paving, lighting and landscaping.
The project provides a comprehensive master plan for the whole estate providing a total of 199 new homes; a mix of new build infill, reconfiguration of garages into new homes and affordable workspace and estate wide public realm improvements.
Residents have been actively involved with regeneration ideas since 2013 when development plans were first proposed.
