Peter Barber designs new London street - image

Peter Barber Architects has designed this street in New Cross, south London, which is due to start on site imminently.

The London borough of Lewisham gave the architect the go-ahead for the project - which includes 42 dwellings - earlier this year.

The development comprises a new tree-lined mews street, flanked by terraces of two-storey flats and houses.

The designer claims that the scheme reintroduces a historic public route through the site, providing 'improved pedestrian links to New Cross station'.

The housing association client, Presentation, commissioned Barber in early 2005 to design a 'flagship project' that 'pushed the boundaries of affordable housing', according to the designer.

A spokesperson for Barber's office said: 'The project manages to achieve the density required by ODPM while remaining low rise and providing a high level of amenity for the dwellings.'
