Beam Park, London
IDP assisted Barratt London to deliver this 2000 unit regeneration proposal for the former Ford factory in Dagenham. The Masterplan in ‘programmed’ with a sequence of big moves that emulate a sequence of ‘production line’ processes. This arises in deliberate cuts and distortions in the plan and further into the language of the buildings.
The masterplan has been organised to passively incorporate SUDS systems and use these to soften the street network, whilst movement structure is focused towards promoting a walkable neighbourhood through a sequence of landscapes and spaces.
