Phone number — 07776759640

Tutors — Tumpa Husna Yasmin Fellows & Ruth Lang

Location — De Beauvoir Estate, Hackney

Size — 2,000 sqm

 

Objective

Making the Beauvoir Estate more sociable, safe, homely, and dynamic.

 

Motivation

During the Pandemic, the London Borough of Hackney was one of the worst-affected places, with rates of social isolation among young people. De Beauvoir Estate in Hackney, which has around 800 residents and a large proportion of young adults, suffers from substandard public spaces, high reoffending rates, and poorly maintained children’s play areas. Yet this is the case despite the area’s rich history and many rich cultural identities within the community.

 

Strategy

The project transforms the Estate’s under-utilized public spaces into performance, learning, and social hubs, providing exciting opportunities for young residents to learn, perform and spend time with one another, as well as encouraging older residents to celebrate their culture through various activities.

 

Impact

The initiative intends to create a more domestic feel within the Estate by providing learning and playing facilities for children as well as other activities for adults. Making use of the site’s underutilised public areas, as well as providing many levels of visibility across these places, contributes to the site’s safety. The transformed spaces’ design language aims to bring a more vibrant and playful architectural visual aesthetic to the estate’s heart, making it more welcoming to both residents and strangers. Finally, the project provides an incredible opportunity for young residents to practise performing art and music while being heard and seen by the public.
