Refurbish / Reinforce / Remodel
Refurbish / Reinforce / Remodel addresses three approaches to estate regeneration. In January the Prime Minister set out the Government’s plan to extend life chances across Britain, with a goal to radically transform 100 estates across the country. In this short documentary Alex Ely describes three avenues for transformation being developed by Mæ. 'Refurbish' looks at the reuse and renovation of existing stock, ‘Reinforce’ proposes infilling as a means to intensify and sustain a neighbourhood, and ‘Remodel’ offers a vision of how to positively regenerate failed estates. Each approach aims to improve the quantity and quality of housing on those estates, and to improve the life chances of those who live there.
