London’s Towns: Shaping the Polycentric City

An Insight Study to accompany New London Architecture’s exhibition on London’s Towns: Shaping the Polycentric City includes TateHindle’s The Mount, Millbrook Park.

The publication looks at the future role of outer town centres in accommodating London’s significant population growth and explores the next wave of development taking shape, looking ahead to how the capital could be strengthened as a truly polycentric city.

Situated on an extensive brownfield site next to existing infrastructure, Millbrook Park is a phased development of 2174 new homes, transforming an area previously occupied by MOD army barracks. Supporting the housing provision, a new public square with retail units, commercial space, primary school, underground central-heating plant and police station will help create a sustainable urban extension in outer London. TateHindle’s design for the first phase provides 133 homes which exploit the dramatically sloping parkland setting to create a variety of dwellings.
