The former residents of the complex where Grenfell Tower once stood are now participating in its redesign.

Gardens, elevators and more space for community use were some of the amenities residents requested, according to the Architect’s Newspaper. They also noted the need for security cameras and an updated assessment of the fire risk.

In June last year, more than 70 people were killed in a fire that was fuelled by the building’s new cladding.

Six architecture firms are now working on proposals, which residents will have a chance to review when complete. Adjaye Associates is one of six architecture firms selected to re-imagine the housing complex, which was first designed in 1964. [AN]Erin Hudson
