Queenshurst Kingston upon Thames
Berkeley Homes, London
328 residential units, Commercial, Educational & Community units
The Queenshurst project in Kingston Upon Thames is an inspirational example for a high quality regeneration project that turns a contaminated brownfield site into a thriving residential community and successful extension of the local town centre. This new residential quarter kick-starts the regeneration of the North Kingston area and replaces three large scale, derelict gas holders.
Designed and delivered for Berkeley Homes, Carey Jones Chapman Tolcher created a new urban perimeter block that provides 328 high quality apartments, connected into its surroundings through generously landscaped and strategically located public realm connections. The scheme is further knitted into its local context by providing community, educational and commercial uses at ground floor level.
Queenshurst seeks to create an attractive, liveable place with a clear identity. There is a large garden square in the centre of the development and a new linear park running along the eastern part of the site. This creates a much needed and attractive pedestrian and cycle connection to bypass Richmond Road, enabling future connections into Kingston Station via the adjacent development site.
