Ely Court

by Alison Brookes Architects for Catalyst Housing

Ely Court is a 43-dwelling mixed-tenure regeneration scheme within Phase 1b of London’s South Kilburn Estate Regeneration masterplan The scheme demonstrates the ability of a Local Authority to lead the process of enlightened city building, by commissioning and delivering housing of the highest caliber to integrate previously segregated communities.


The joint masterplan for the Phase 1a and 1b site reinstates the block and street pattern that characterised this archetypal 19th C London ‘suburb’ by reinstating a mews street in the middle of the shared block, Alpha Mews. This mews draws pedestrians and vehicles into what was previously an isolated and under-used ‘green space’ between slab blocks and is made up of shared surfaces, play areas, parking, and connects newly defined garden squares.
