Transformation project includes development of new medical centre
Penoyre & Prasad has been appointed by the London Borough of Brent to bring forward the design of a high-quality residential development and medical centre that will form a focal point for the ongoing regeneration of south Kilburn.
The Peel Project will provide 235 residential units, a new medical centre, and a new public square. The development team is led by Penoyre & Prasad and includes East Architecture, Price & Myers, and Max Fordham.
Penoyre & Prasad partner, Mark Rowe, said: “We’re proud to have been selected to work with Brent Council, local residents, and GP’s to take the next steps in the rebuilding of this part of London. The quality of what’s been achieved here to date is undeniable and we intend to create a family of buildings and public spaces that maintain those high standards.”
Brent Council has demonstrated a commitment to high-quality and award-winning design for the South Kilburn Regeneration Programme through the appointment of practices including Alison Brooks Architects, Lifshutz Davidson Sandilands, Simpson Haugh & Partners FCB Studios, PRP Architects LLP, and Erect Architecture.
Councillor Margaret McLennan, lead member for housing and development at Brent Council, said: “The Peel Project is a significant part of the regeneration of south Kilburn and will bring forward a brand new medical centre, an attractive new public square, and hundreds of new high-quality homes, including homes for existing secure tenants.
“An exciting scheme such as this requires an exceptional design team, so we are thrilled to have appointed Penoyre & Prasad as the lead architects. We will now work with them to prepare a planning application.”
