More 'traditional' design forced on Pimlico housing

  • Comment

Ellis Williams Architects has been forced to shelve its modern-style designs for luxury housing on the Pimlico School site in favour of a 'Cubitt'- style scheme. The practice, which is designing 160 houses on the site for Berkeley Homes as part of the pfi consortium seeking permission to redevelop the site, has been asked to respond to criticism of its earlier scheme by residents to go for a more 'traditional solution.' Director John Adden said the one-, two-, and three-bed flats on the prized site would not, however, be 'replicas' or pastiche, and consortium bid manager John Tibbits said: 'We're bowing to the wishes of the residents.' See page 20

Pimlico School is included on a list of 51 post-1914 buildings the Twentieth Century Society says are 'at risk, special, exciting and well worth keeping' this week.
