Barton Willmore has been shortlisted, with KC+A, for the London Borough of Hounslow (LBoH) design competition to regenerate Convent Way in Hounslow.

The LBoH identified the Convent Way estate as a unique opportunity for improvement at the beginning of this year, since then their Landscape Design and London Planning team, with architects at KC+A, have created a vision for a neighbourhood that supports a thriving community, unearthing its heritage, with new homes that foster health and well-being.

The masterplan proposals presented seek to keep the many things that they have learnt that the community value and detail how they plan on meeting the residents’ needs and desires.

The design revolves around four key drivers:

  1. Creating a sense of place
  2. Community outdoor spaces
  3. Ease of movement
  4. Views and light

Barton Willmore’s Landscape Design Director, Alex Comrie said “A complete series of green spaces, parks, footpaths, cycleways, growing spaces, shared gardens, trees and greenery make this new neighbourhood really connect, connect as a community and connect to the wider area(s). Aiding the creation of place and pride, the landscaping and public realm provides an opportunity for healthy, active lifestyles and importantly, places for people to get to know each other or take time out in and relax.”
