Project summary

The Packington estate was previously one of the most deprived estates in north London; with homes plighted by a system build design fault, and anti-social behaviour. The new award winning scheme includes tenure blind apartments, a focus on family housing and a design that is carefully integrated into its heritage surroundings.

Thanks to Hyde’s close partnership with local residents and the London Borough of Islington, paired with architectural excellence and sustainable modern technology; Packington is an inclusive, desirable community that complements the surrounding area, offering a place for everyone to prosper.

Why the partnership works

  • Involving residents in decision making from the very beginning
  • Integrating the new community through the award winning Packington Families Project
  • A transparent approach with clear lines of accountability
  • A 50:50 partnership between Hyde and Rydon equally sharing risk, reward, skills and expertise.

The Packington Estate has been transformed from isolated blocks of intimidating and soulless housing into a living community with real heart and purpose.
