Winning Greenwich Village architects revealed
Jestico + Whiles, Studio 54 and Peter Barber Architects have won a competition to design the last three phases of the Greenwich Millennium Village (GMV) regeneration project 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.
The project to build 1,850 homes on a site to the south of the Richard Rogers Partnership-designed Millennium Dome completes a decade-old regeneration programme for the area masterplanned by Ralph Erskine.
The first and second phases (pictured) delivered 1,000 homes and started on site in 1999.
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.’
