Brompton Quarter Masterplan

South Kensington, London SW3

Child Graddon Lewis was appointed in 2003 to advise, masterplan and implement the regeneration of a West London-based, inner-city location collectively known as Brompton Quarter. The area comprises of five separate blocks, dating from the turn of the 19th Century and fronting onto Brompton Road in the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea.

The brief was to provide an open-ended, flexible framework that identified improvements to both enhance and regenerate this parcel of land and properties, but critically the wider public realm and movement through the area. Located within a Conservation Area and directly facing two Grade II Listed churches that collectively add to the historic character of the area, the project therefore additionally required a sensitive and holistic approach to regeneration.

High quality design that empathised with the historic context was paramount to the success of the masterplan and to create a distinctive place that attracts outstanding retailers and visitors to the location. The brief expanded in 2009 to include the South Kensington Estate, the area to the west of Brompton Quarter, and is still evolving today – in particular by liaising with TfL and how its redevelopment of South Kensington Station impacts on the wider area.
