Working on an international level from the start, KCAP has designed and realized projects in major countries and cities all over the world such as Hamburg, Zurich, Perm, London, Beijing and Amsterdam. The office gained international recognition with projects such as Kavel 25 housing block in The Hague, Wijnhaveneiland and the Red Apple in Rotterdam, GWL district in Amsterdam, HafenCity in Hamburg and the Perm Strategic Masterplan.

Legacy Masterplan Framework London

This project means structural development of London Olympic Park after the Games of 2012

The 'Legacy Masterplan Framework' (LMF) can be considered as one of London’s biggest redevelopment projects from the last decades. It prescribes the redevelopment of the Olympic Park and Lea Valley after the Olympic Games in 2012.

The LMF sets out the ambition for the development of the Olympic Park and Lower Lea Valley, building on the investment for the Olympic Games and subsequent transformation work. The framework plan will guide the delivery of thousands of new homes, employment space and community facilities and will deliver long-term regeneration benefits for the area. The LMF masterplan is a framework rather than a rigid blueprint for development and is supported by a suite of strategies that outline the broad approach to implementation and delivery. Collectively, they will ensure that the ambition level is achieved over the lifetime of the development.

Those strategies are to create a diversity of neighborhoods which draw together all social groups, cultures and various employment opportunities in one complex but integrated quarter of the city; to use the Olympic inheritance as catalyst for regeneration; to maximise transport connections of the former Olympic site with its established neighborhoods; to activate public realm and waterways by maximising the unique qualities and opportunities provided by the Lea Valley’s riverine landscape and parklands; and to promote adaptability and longevity as long-term perspective for the development of the site.
