In pictures: Competition winning Greenwich Millennium Village scheme unveiled

  • Comment

[FIRST LOOK + PLANS] These are the first images of Jestico + Whiles, Studio 54 Architecture and Peter Barber Architects’ project to build 1,800 homes in south east London

The practices beat two other shortlisted design teams to win the competition, the first featuring Feilden Clegg Bradley, Alison Brooks and S333, and the second made up of Aecom, Proctor & Matthews, Maccreanor Lavington and Karakusevic Carson.

Heinz Richardson, director at Jestico + Whiles, said:  ‘The creation of sustainable neighborhoods is at the heart of our approach to the masterplan: creating places in which people want to live through different stages of their lives.

‘Our aim is to encourage the development of a real community through our design. Urban squares within the network of streets will offer places for children to play and for social events to take place, while pedestrians and cyclists will be given priority in the heart of the Village.’

Originally masterplanned by Ralph Erksine in the late 1990s, the project is the latest phase in a delayed project to redevelop the area.

The first and second phases delivered 1,000 homes and started on site in 1999.

A detailed planning application for the first pahse of 500 homes will be submitted later this year.

Countryside Properties with Taylor Wimpey launched the competition back in March. The competition organisers said a very high standard of architectural design was presented from each of the shortlisted teams.

A spokesperson said: ‘In the end it was a hard decision to make, as all of the schemes left the judges overwhelmed with the strength of [their] design.’
