PTEa bags £269m Woolwich regeneration
Pollard Thomas Edwards Architects (PTEa) has been appointed on a project to redevelop three former Woolwich council estates
The Connaught, Morris Walk and Maryon Grove estates, which were built during the 1960s and 70s, will be demolished and replaced with a 1,500-home scheme.
The PTEa-designed replacement will include family homes, mews houses and courtyard blocks.
Construction on the regeneration is expected to start in 2014.
The architect’s view
The project will transform what are essentially mono-tenure estates into mixed and balanced communities. The scheme will also create clearly defined public and private green spaces: private back gardens for family houses and a series of parkland arteries connecting the surrounding neighbourhoods.
Our approach is to regenerate neighbourhoods through careful planning and the addition of contemporary new homes and infrastructure – ensuring we speak directly to the communities involved.
