The Richmond Housing Partnership (RHP) owns 192 flats at Ham Close in Richmond, and much of the surrounding land. The flats are no longer fit for purpose, and generate high energy and maintenance costs.
In 2013, Studio LK with The Prince’s Foundation, were invited by RHP and Richmond Council to work with residents, businesses and local organisations, to consider future design options for Ham Close.
During December 2013 and January 2014, Studio LK and The Prince’s Foundation led an Enquiry by Design consultation with local residents and stakeholders.
They produced three masteplan options, design principles upon which a future vision for the area should be based, followed by a viability appraisal of the three masterplan options for the site – the first for for total redevelopment of the site, the second for infill development and refurbishment of existing blocks of flats, and the third for a ‘do nothing’ scenario.
