PUDDING MILL LANE / Collaboration with Gort Scott for the LLDC, delivering a successful planning application for 900+ homes, a new local centre, social infrastructure and 30,000m2 of commercial space.

The demand for development of our town and cities and pressure on land requires more efficient use of the land that is available. To solve the dilemma of limited land and increasingly protected building stock, our clients need masterplans that can successfully integrate a coherent approach to the city, the institution and the individual site.

We have developed multiple masterplans in the Lea Valley, including achieving outline planning permission for Pudding Mill Lane. We also work with our clients to understand how these new neighbourhoods evolve over time, to support them being attractive places from day one, including our work at Meridian Water for Enfield Council.

“The Meanwhile Masterplan is dynamic and flexible; it is the creative connection between these active uses on the ground and the emerging long-term vision and objectives of the Meridian Water Masterplan. In this way, it is adding value to the Masterplan by experimenting with early delivery of Masterplan concepts, and by exploring ideas, themes and project interventions that will help to fundamentally drive change and deliver socio-economic regeneration.”

Simon Gardner, Regeneration Director – Meridian Water

MERIDIAN WATER MEANWHILE MASTERPLAN / 5th Studio led on the creation of a meanwhile and interim masterplan for one of the UK's largest regeneration area, and delivered key first phase built projects.
INDUSTRIAL COLOCATION AND INTENSIFICATION / We have been working with both the public and private sector to understand the challenges of safeguarding and strengthening the role of industry and logistics in our cities.

“The team’s response to a multi-headed client with an evolving brief was exceptional. This was a truly collaborative process that needed expert project management, fast responses to changing circumstances, excellent knowledge of exemplar intensification and the ability to create and communicate a clear long-term vision. Deliverability was key and 5th’s through research into industrial processes gave us real confidence in the outcome. The process was as important as the outcome and the 5th Studio team were incredibly responsive and a pleasure to work with.”

Richard Wilson, Regeneration and Place, LB Camden Strategic Lead

We are skilled at creating estate masterplans, supporting clients to manage their assests, increasing their attractiveness, energy efficiently, and co-ordinated growth and adaptation to meet 21st Century demands.

We are spatially entrepreneurial – some of our most creative work has involved identifying and proposing projects, establishing what could happen in a place.

We like to work with clients from the very beginning, helping to establish a brief and providing the project narrative, information for financial appraisals and other pragmatic material.

We have helped multiple Colleges, landowners, and public sector authorities better understand their properties and to create comphrehensive investment strategies. This has included over a decade working with Trinity College, and the development of a social masterplan and delivery of its first phase for Oriel College.

TRINITY COLLEGE, CAMBRIDGE / 5th Studio developed a strong working relationship with the college, which encompassed a range of scales and concerns, from strategic design and College estate studies, to carefully made contemporary interventions within existing buildings.
COLLEGE MASTERPLAN, ORIEL COLLEGE / Distilling a complex, multi-stranded and nuanced brief into legible graphic form has allowed the establishment of a clear strategic structure for the development of the college’s central site. This strategy proposes two axes – one ceremonial and convivial, the other focussed on teaching, collaboration and outreach – that intersect in Oriel Square.

“The Royal Docks is one of the largest regeneration projects in London and the work that 5th Studio undertook was crucial to helping us to plan our interventions in public realm and infrastructure, to bring a framework to bear on an area that had been developed in an ad hoc way, and helped to provide an overarching strategy for a large area. The 5th Studio team showed an ability to comprehend a large area, to analyse the way in which places are used and to come up with a range of interventions to resolve the issues.”

Paul Creed, Head of Development & Placemaking / Royal Docks Team

ROYAL DOCKS PUBLIC REALM FRAMEWORK AND DESIGN GUIDES / 5th Studio have supported the GLA's Royal Docks Team and LB Newham through the production of a suite of documents that identify the future vision and methods for delivering an attractive and coherent public realm.

We are spatially entrepreneurial – some of our most creative work has involved identifying and proposing projects, establishing what could happen in a place.

We regularly work at the large scale of major growth areas, creating place making strategies and design frameworks which steer incremental and long-term change towards a greater public benefit.

We have worked extensively in the Lower Lea Valley – on the Lea River Park, the Royal Docks and around the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park.

CHESTER CITY GATEWAY / 5th Studio working with Chester City Council and LCR developed an illustrative masterplan which has developed a vision for the station gateway and identifies the potential proposals for multiple sites across the area.
LEA RIVER PARK / Connecting the Olympic Park to the Thames, the Lea River Park acts as a new public landscape and a catalyst for change in the Lower Lea Valley. We have led design work on this project since 2009.

“While the Olympic Park and its associated paraphernalia of furniture and lighting did its best to lay a freshly designed carpet over an area of shagginess, 5th Studio’s work feels more like the kind of hard-working infrastructure that might have always been here.”

Oliver Wainwright, The river that London forgot, The Guardian, April 2017
