First scheme to come out of Peabody’s Small Projects Panel completes

  • Comment

Peabody Small Projects Panel member Lyndon Goode Architects has completed this infill project on the Cleverly estate in Hammersmith, West London

PROJECT DATA • ARCHITECT’S VIEW • CLIENT’S VIEW • PLANS • SECTION

The five home scheme is the first to be delivered by Peabody’s Small Projects panel and was developed from a concept designed by Stirling Prize-winner Haworth Tompkins.

The two-storey cottages replace a row of garages on two infill sites either side of Sawley Road.

The first site includes a two-storey semi-detached cottage while the other – located 10m away – is home to three new cottages.

The designs feature pre-cast white concrete surrounds to entrances, a projecting pre-cast stringer and individually coloured doors – details which all take their cue from the decorative flourishes of the existing housing on the Cleverly estate.

Located in a conservation area, the Cleverly estate includes 18 three-storey mansion blocks which were built in 1928 to a design inspired by Christopher Wren.

Architect’s view

This is the first of three schemes that we are working on for Peabody to have been completed. Residents have told us that they love their new homes, with the generous loft spaces being a particular favourite.

Both new buildings ‘borrow’ from the existing landscaping, with hedges and mature trees creating a dappled light over the elevations as well as providing privacy for the residents.

An asymmetric roof profile allows the living space to extend into the roof, creating a greater sense of space, while maintaining an efficient footprint and retaining the buildings’ low line. Dormers help the building to blend in with surrounding tapestry. Windows to all dwellings are carefully located not to give views into neighbouring blocks.

Client’s view

Our project panels exist to help us deliver homes for Londoners while offering opportunities for practices large and small — helping us fulfil our mission of making London a city of opportunity for all. The Cleverly Cottages are among the first of a programme of infill developments we are delivering within our larger estates. LGA picked up this project on a very tight programme and worked closely with Quinn London to deliver a high quality scheme. We look forward to working with the same design team on an original scheme in Lee Green, Lewisham.
