Alphabet, Kilburn

We worked together with London Brough of Brent on the redevelopment of the Land North of Chippenham Gardens (LNCG). The development comprises 52 new homes (22 for existing secure tenants of South Kilburn for affordable social rent), new enhanced Public Square (adopted highway) adjacent to the site and wider landscape and highway improvements. This car-free development comprises one, two, and three-bedroom apartments with private balconies or winter gardens.

This new boutique development forms an exciting addition to the South Kilburn Regeneration Programme that’s transforming the area. The award-winning South Kilburn regeneration, led by Brent Council, is creating 2,400 new high-quality homes, of which at least 1,400 will be for existing secure council tenants and households in temporary accommodation. The development has been designed by PRP Architects and the wider multi-disciplinary design team who underwent an extensive and inclusive consultation process with existing residents and wider stakeholders.

We commissioned a stunning piece of artwork on the site hoarding, created by London based artist Frankie Strand. The artwork creates a unique mural celebrating the greenery and wildlife found at Chippenham Gardens in the past, present and future and features British plants and wildlife throughout the different seasons.

As part of our Social Value offering, we provided a unique and exciting opportunity for South Kilburn residents to share their favourite recipe and narrative that represents their cultural heritage. Successful dishes feature in a creative and distinctive South Kilburn Community Cookbook.

Councillor Shama Tatler, Brent Council’s Cabinet Member for Regeneration, Highways and Planning, said: “We are delighted to have appointed Higgins, we look forward to continuing to work in partnership with residents and the local community, as we take this next step towards making South Kilburn a great place to live for everyone.”
