Your Brent Magazine | Durham & Gloucester Court

Spring 2021’s edition of ‘Your Brent’ magazine features an article with some new residents of ABA’s Durham & Gloucester Court, part of the South Kilburn Estate Regeneration. When asked whether they still supported the award-winning regeneration of the estate at the residents’ ballot, the community overwhelmingly backed the council’s plans to continue rebuilding the neighbourhood – with 84% voting yes. We are honoured to be part of this journey and contribute to a real sense of place and belonging. Explore the story

People, Place, Planet #3 | Lecture by Alison Brooks

For this lecture at RIBA Somerset, Alison Brooks talked through some of her recent award winning and exemplar works and explained how they are borne out of contemporary constraints.

“People, Place, Planet #3” explored the power of context and how it refreshes and invigorates her work, becoming the story behind her designs. There was a particular focus on the local context and story of the Taunton Maggie’s Centres.
