Rayners Lane Estate


MEPK Architects together with Schoenaich Landscape Architects and RPS Transport Consultants reviewed and redesigned the Rayners Lane Masterplan.

The masterplanning team established and developed close links with the local residents through resident consultation exercises and drop-in’s and formed a good working relationship with RLETRA, the Rayners Lane Estate Tenants and Residents Association.

The review resulted in the publication of a “Design Guide” for the Rayners Lane Estate acting as both a visual and written Spatial Masterplan for the estate.

The Design Guide defines:

  • Home Group’s Vision for the estate
  • Retention of existing landscape features and trees.
  • Key Principles of the Masterplan Design
  • Movement and Street Patterns
  • Open / Space and Play Network
  • Building Heights
  • Townscape Principles
  • Detailed examples of Street Types, Boundary Treatments, Enclosure and Open Space.
