Dover Court Estate is an 11m regeneration project in Islington London. The existing 60’s estate is being upgraded with major improvements to the public realm, improvements to front-to-back relationships and rationalisation of loose, amorphous space. The scheme also includes approx. 70 new build homes across a range of tenures, with private sale homes being used to fund the social housing on the site. New homes include small mews houses, 3 and four storey townhouses, apartments (including wheelchair apartments and third-age housing for the over 55’s.
I worked on the project through Stage C-D and took part in a number of public consultation events to discuss the scheme with local residents.
