Delivers quality, exemplar housing for the local community
Karakusevic Carson Architects & Maccreanor Lavington for London Borough of Enfield
Contract value: £7.7m
Dujardin Mews is the first council-led social housing by Enfield Council in 40 years, the first phase of the wider regeneration of the Alma Estate. The project maximises the site and delivers quality, exemplar housing for the local community. Houses are rotated on one side of the slim site so they are wide and shallow, providing variation and a new rhythm.
Externally, high-quality brick, carefully considered elevations and clever planning for bikes and bins, makes an ordered street. Inside, houses and apartments are generous and well planned. Enfield’s willingness to invest in quality, openness to the design team’s expertise and engagement with the community and prospective tenants was commendable.
