Paul Maddock – HTA Designs

The Heartland Project

Thursday 27th October, 6pm, Robin Evans Room (M416)

University of Westminster

Department of Architecture

Paul Maddock joined HTA Designs in 2003 as a Project Architect, and since then has worked on a wide range of residential-led regeneration projects across the UK and abroad. He is one of HTA’s Design Leaders since 2005, becoming an Associate in 2012.

The Heartlands project is located in the Cornish village of Pool and forms a part of The Homes and Communities Agency’s regeneration programme for Pool’s industrial mining legacy. The development of 144 houses and flats are situated across two sites overlooking the central Heartlands Park. Previously the sites had formed part of Cornwall’s tin mining past, and the surrounding local landscape is dotted with the remnants of its historic past.

The masterplan was developed in close collaboration with the local planning department and the local community. The masterplan includes 54 Custom Build house plots. This regeneration represents the Government’s first and biggest Custom Build projects for England, offering people from across Cornwall the chance to select a Home Manufacturer and customise their own home. A new open space is also planned, termed “Not the Village Green”, and will be designed through the joint collaboration with the new community.

HTA Design is a multi-disciplinary practice based in London, Manchester and Edinburgh, specialising in housing and regeneration.
