Ladbrooke Grove, London
London Borough of Kensington and Chelsea
Kensington and Chelsea Environment Award
Working alongside the Neighbourhood Nursery Initiative, Sure Start North Kensington and the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea regeneration programme, the development included restoring a Grade II listed Maxwell Fry and Elizabeth Denby building for the use of a new nursery in a small social housing estate. While reinstating as many original features as possible and removing a series of unsympathetic 1970s extensions, some minor alterations to the internal layout were designed to accommodate the building’s new function.
