ZCD Architects worked on Phase 2 of this infill regeneration project on the De Beauvoir Estate in East London. We carried out engagement with groups of young people who live in and around the estate. The work complements our involvement with the development of the Borough’s Spatial Planning Document: Child Friendly Places SPD.
ZCD have a deep knowledge of the estate, as we were invited to locate our 2018 research Neighbourhood Design: Working with Children towards a Child Friendly Borough here.
For this project we returned to work with De Beauvoir School as well as the CRIB youth club. Their voices have influenced the thinking about the connections and the types of spaces within the public realm across the estate.
