The Byron Quarter is a major scheme within the ‘Building a Better Harrow’ Regeneration Programme.
The project will provide a long-term income stream to the Council from the development of Council-owned build-to-rent housing in a well-designed, mixed-tenure neighbourhood with leisure and well-being at its heart. By creating a strong relationship between sports and leisure facilities and Byron Recreation Ground the project will improve the use of the park, and maximise health and well-being benefits to prospective and existing local residents. Periscope are working with Duggan Morris Architects, Gort Scott Architects, Karakusevic Carson Architects and Mark Projects.
Periscope is working on the landscape masterplan and detailed landscape design of Phase 1. The project comprises streetscape design, courtyards, residential gardens, green links to the town centre and a 150 metre long 'Belvedere' to Byron recreation ground. This Belvedere collects together the existing skate park and new play facilities into a re-made park edge. The project has the potential to transform the local area, place the borough at the forefront of regeneration practice in London and continue the high standard of Harrow Regeneration Unit led schemes in Harrow.
