NLA - London’s Towns: Shaping the Polycentric City

As part of the latest NLA insight study HTS Associate, Elliott Furminger recently took part in the Outer London Station Sites design charrette investigating five TfL sites.

The multidisciplinary teams worked on developing conceptual solutions for high density mixed-use developments. Elliott’s team focused on Barking, a Grade II listed station with complex operational requirements. Working alongside representatives from Pilbrow + Partners, Sheppard Robson, Berkeley St Edward, Ash Sakula Architects and TfL, the design team developed a proposal to build a new road over the back of the site, creating a traffic-free public realm to the front of the station and revitalising the surrounding area.

The future visions from the charrette feature in an NLA exhibition, research publication and series of events and talks. To find out more and download a copy of the publication, visit the NLA website. Upcoming events include: London Towns PechaKucha, Public Assets: Enabling growth in London’s Towns, Outer London Station Sites

The exhibition is on until 11th January 2018, and features other HTS projects including Vicarage Field in Barking, Hill House in Archway and Albany Riverside in Brentford.
