Byron Quarter

The Colville Estate sits to the north east of Shoreditch Park, on the fringes of the City of London.  The post war housing estate is home to an incredibly strong and active community living in tired building stock. Periscope is working on the estate regeneration project, a fifteen year programme to rehabilitate the estate by providing high quality new homes and new public realm.

Periscope’s role is to weave together fifty years of community and  8 years of design thinking into a joyful, coherent and robust place capable of supporting the community for generations to come. Our work includes the shared streetscapes, growing spaces, pocket parks, play spaces and roof gardens. 

Periscope is currently working with Higgins delivering the public realm associated with Phase 2 as part of the wider team which includes Karakusevic Carson Architects, David Chipperfield Architects, VOGT and MUF.
