West Malling, Kent
Client: English Partnerships and Taylor Wimpey
Terence O’Rourke worked with Taylor Wimpey and the Homes and Communities Agency on the residential redevelopment of the former Leybourne Grange Hospital site near West Malling in Kent.
The project was designed as an exemplar new community, and offers high quality new homes in an attractive, healthy and sustainable environment. The project delivers over 700 dwellings, a new village centre and large areas of open space across the 99-hectare site. These are set in the historic parkland of the grade II listed Manor House, which has been restored to form the centrepiece of the scheme. Throughout the design process the practice had to meet the rigorous and sometimes competing objectives of the Homes and Communities Agency, the local authority and client.
