Peabody housing vision unveiled in Clapham
Hawkins\Brown Architects has designed a 650-home estate for Peabody at Clapham Junction, South London that more than doubles the capacity of the existing development
The proposal is a test scheme for the housing association’s future vision, released today, which was drawn up with Terry Farrell and which is set to offer further work to practices with future projects.
Chair of the Peabody Trust Pam Alexander said: ‘There will be lots of opportunities in the future. For the first, Clapham, we are still working on a detailed business case and we still need to get planning permission.’
Every home on the estate, which sits right next to the rail station, will have outside space and be built to exceed level 4 of Code for Sustainable Homes.
The scheme will be funded through a combination of social housing grants, the sale of private homes and low-carbon initiative grants.
