BM3 have been a preferred Architectural partner to BMHT since 2009 and have designed over 3,000 new homes for regeneration projects across the city.
This redevelopment will provide 300 new homes for affordable rent and outright sale, completed in four phases. Phases 1-3 were completed in 2019 with phase 4 ongoing and currently ongoing. The project included a new enhanced roadway, safe pedestrian routes and a large new park for residents to enjoy.
The scheme used excellent urban design principles to kick start the regeneration of the area changing the perception of council housing. Integration within existing neighbourhoods was assured by engaging with the community using a design-led approach.
The Lyndhurst project won the 2020 Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) Social Impact Award. The judges praised how the high quality design renewed and revitalised a previously run-down area.
“The Lyndhurst Estate Regeneration is an example of an incredibly difficult project to deliver due to the complex issues associated with estate renewal. This scheme comprised of several phases with two developers. However, the key to its success was the work of the client’s project team.
“They look to have learned throughout the project to evolve what they were delivering while maintaining excellent design standards. Particularly impressive areas included the local supply chain and the drive to minimise fuel poverty for their tenants and purchasers. This estate historically had an extremely negative reputation which this project has gone a long way towards lifting.”
