This sounds like there will be some very interesting proposals, though all of these firms are known for their leading contemporary designs and are not known for doing heritage type work, which is what has been outlined for the Crystal Palace project, at least from an exterior perspective.

No-one is expecting a true replica, the key to the project is really a financially viable proposal - functionally - which is publicly accessible, a highly accurate looking exterior reconstruction of the former crystal palace, and its relationship to the park - which ought to reinstate the immediate terraces and fountains in some grand park form.

Bidders day for £55m west London estate rebuild

Housing association Affinity Sutton is planning a contractors’ day ahead of inviting bids to rebuild a major housing estate in Ealing.

The plan to regenerate Ealing’s Dean Gardens Estate, known locally as Sherwood Close, will involve demolition of existing estates and delivering 300 new homes including affordable housing and market sale.

Work on the £55m build is expected to start in April next year and run through to summer 2020.

Built in the 1960s the estate currently provides 209 mainly one and two bedroom flats which are poorly laid out and despite the close proximity to Ealing Broadway offer few links between the estate and the wider area.

The new proposals will seek to create a more sustainable neighbourhood with new affordable and private homes within a well laid out landscape and with better access and links to the Broadway and wider community.

The contractor afternoon event will be held on 18 July at 14:30 pm to brief interested parties on the redevelopment of Sherwood Close and to answer any queries on design, procurement and programme.

Have to agree with you there, Its one of my most visited webpages London really does have an amazing variety of design projects. Is there a London design thread as it would be interesting to discuss all design projects (Architecture, Fashion, Graphics, Product design etc.)

Revolutionising London Bridge in nine far-from-easy steps



Costain, HyderWSP and Grimshaw Architects are re-assigning platforms, renovating old elements and creating new ones in a nine-stage transformation of one of London’s busiest hubs.

With the first new tracks at London Bridge Station now in use, the extent of its ambitious and complex redevelopment scheme is becoming apparent.

The project brief was to safely change from six through and nine terminus platforms, to nine through and six terminus, without causing major disruption to passengers – and create a world-class station and concourse in the process.

London Bridge Station is one of the capital’s most heavily used interchanges. It is the hub for overground services from across the South-east and a major interchange for London Underground services travelling north-south and east-west.

In with the new, upgrading the old

The new concourse at street level will be larger than the playing surface at Wembley. The 15 platforms – each 300 m long – will include full-length canopies to protect passengers from inclement weather.

Outside the new concourse, where the original Victorian arches supporting the railway are demolished, the existing infrastructure is being reused, adapted and renovated to meet the demands of a modern railway station.

Added to this, the project was not to exceed the existing footprint, resulting in the need to operate solely within the space between St Thomas Street and Tooley Street.

At every level, London Bridge Station is a complex project. To deliver it, Network Rail brought together parties that include Costain, the HyderWSP JV and Grimshaw Architects to work in a co-located office, in close collaboration.
