We hope that you are well and after a long winter of Covid-19 restrictions and are looking forward to a more relaxed Spring. 

vPPR have remained busy during the Winter months and are excited to share these highlights with you.

We are thrilled to announce that vPPR Architects is part of the winning team for the Camden Highline Competition led by James Corner Field Operations

The Camden Highline will turn a disused stretch of railway viaduct into a new elevated park and walking route, connecting Camden Gardens in the west to York Way in the east.

The rest of the team for this new London Landmark includes Piet Oudolf, Street Space, Speird + Major, Hew Locke, Pentagram, AKT II and Atelier Ten.

The Camden Highline will be open and free to all and be a beacon for positive and sustainable development in London: something that people will be inspired by, learn from and enjoy.

Camden Highline is hosting a virtual Q&A with winners James Corner Field Operations and vPPR Architects, Camden Highline Chair and Jury member Richard Terry, and CEO Simon Pitkeathley on Thursday 11th March at 5:30pm.

Wembley Park's Olympic Way

Since Autumn 2020, vPPR have been engaged as the completion architects and lead designers with Gross Max, responsible for the soft landscaping, for the completion of Olympic Way project.

Undertaken by Quintain in partnership with the London Borough of Brent it is the culmination of 5 years input over four phases, plus much enabling work to infrastructure. The project was initially designed by Dixon Jones and will be open to the public in June 2021.

Brecknock Road

We are delighted that this four-bedroom two-storey detached house, developed across the rear of three under-utilised back gardens in North London is due to be completed in late spring.

The unusual diamond-shaped plan is generated by extending the existing building lines from the surrounding street pattern.

By making use of this geometry of the building, the house is divided into three sections with a varying roof profile that breaks up the mass of the house, whilst providing visual interest for the neighbouring properties in the form of stepped planted roofs.
