Designer sought to replace south London estate

  • Comment
The Peabody Trust is seeking an architect for a £90 million scheme to overhaul the Clapham Estate in south-west London.

The buildings on St John's Hill, described by a Peabody Trust spokesperson as 'a slightly austere 1930s estate', currently contain 350 households - the residents of which will be rehoused in the replacement scheme.

In an OJEU notice, the trust said it is seeking an architect to see the scheme through from feasibility to construction stage. 'The intention is that the existing 350-dwelling estate is demolished and undergoes complete redevelopment to create a higher-density, mixed-tenure estate,' it said.

A Peabody Trust spokesman said the trust was not seeking a 'signature architect', but added: 'We are looking for an architect with experience in estate regeneration, and of course a fantastic designer of buildings.'

Work is expected to start in November with completion pencilled for March 2010.
