Traditional mews houses, mansion blocks and terraced housing served as the model for Catalyst Housing Group’s 1,000 home development which has been masterplanned by PRP to create Portobello Square, a new urban quarter. The most ambitious regeneration scheme in Kensington and Chelsea for decades, it is built around a newly created London square, with social housing seamlessly integrated with private housing to create a truly tenure-blind development of 1,000 new homes.

PRP has also provided detailed design for the first phase of the masterplan for 124 homes which re-establishes a traditional street pattern.
