Project Brief

To pilot a process of creative community involvement on Wybourn and Richmond Park Estates. Working together with residents and stakeholders we aim to achieve a coherent, over arching long term vision for both sites with a series of more detailed visions for communal open spaces and infrastructure.

During the first stage of our 6 week project our objectives are to learn and develop trusted relationships within the two communities and stakeholders.

Reacting from work carried out by Encounters, we will plan a continued process of creative community involvement and design participation, which in the short term will involve innovative engagement with key demographics with assistance from relevant organisations.

This will allow us to develop architectural prototypes and methods which will then be implemented into a long term vision, focussed on renewing identity and placemaking.

The futures bright, the futures..........

Today we took ownership of 255 Manor Oaks Road in Wybourn. A few of the team helped to give our house a new identity and to introduce our brand. The house will be utilised over the next 3 weeks to stage various 'events', hosted by ourselves and 'Encounters'.

The idea is to draw attending to the house and to make people aware that something is about to happen. During the day many people came to speak to us and find out what we were doing so word is already getting around!

Meanwhile the team has started to target different demographic groups within Wybourn, by organising a series of workshops.
