Hat-Trick Design has been selected to work on a wayfinding project for the Stockwell Park and Robsart Estate development in Lambeth, south London.



The consultancy was appointed following a pitch against three other consultancies held last month, according to director Gareth Howat.



Hat-Trick was commissioned by cultural consultancy Future City, which is working on a cultural strategy for the area for housing association alliance Network Housing Group.



Mark Davy, director of Future City, says the wayfinding will comprise part of phase two of the development, which is awaiting sign-off from the Network Housing Group.



As part of phase one, a masterplan for the area has been developed by architect BPTW and landscape architect Gensler.



Howat says, ‘The wayfinding project is very comprehensive – it will look at street signage, visitor information, notice boards and other aspects.



‘We will be creating a toolkit for the wayfinding, which we hope to get done in the next three months, and will then start to look at the application, and what materials will be used.’



Other aspects of the development include three street furniture works, artwork on building hoardings, and the establishment of an arts committee, says Davy.



Hat-Trick has previously worked with Future City on projects including the Ebbsfleet Landmark in Kent.
