Brentford Lock West Block E wins at the RIBA London Regional Awards 2018 Project Update

Brentford Lock West Block E scheme has won a RIBA London Regional Award 2018. Drawing inspiration from the local environment, our ambition was to create a vibrant canal-side residential community. 

We designed pavilion buildings with distinct saw-tooth roof forms that enhance the skyline and bring light into the upper floors. Deep façades create versatile outdoor loggias and homes have landscaped courtyards that act as a threshold to the street. Our scheme forms part of the second phase of a three phase development project beside the Grand Union Canal, which has been awarded a Customer Satisfaction Gold Award. Read more about our project here.

Refurbish / Reinforce / Remodel Research News

Following the Government’s Estate Regeneration National Strategy initiative, we commissioned a film exploring three approaches to Estate Regeneration; Refurbish / Reinforce / Remodel.

This follows the Prime Minister's proposal back in January 2016 to extend life chances across Britain, with the goal to radically transform 100 estates across the country. 

In our short documentary, Alex Ely describes three avenues for transformation being developed by Mæ. 'Refurbish' looks at the reuse and renovation of existing stock, ‘Reinforce’ proposes infilling as a means to intensify and sustain a neighbourhood, and ‘Remodel’ offers a vision of how to positively regenerate failed estates. Each approach aims to improve the quantity and quality of housing on those estates, and to improve the life chances of those who live there.
