Lyndon Goode wins Peabody Olympic legacy housing

  • Comment

Lyndon Goode Architects has been appointed for a mixed-use scheme at Peabody’s Fish Island site opposite the Olympic Park

The emerging practice saw off competition from other practices on Peabody’s Small Projects Panel including Adam Khan Architects, Urban Salon, Studio 54 Architecture and Jan Kattein Architects.

Its design for Block A at Neptune Wharf will feature 16 flats above ground floor shops.

According to the practice, the scheme, which is being built from durable materials and features patterned facades, is designed to ‘look better after ten years than on day one’.

The project forms part of Peabody’s 578-home development for the site which also includes work by Haworth Tompkins, Pitman Tozer, and Farrer Huxley Associates.  


Dale Meredith, interim executive director development and sales at Peabody, said: ‘This appointment brings us a step closer to realising our exciting vision for Fish Island, where we plan to build on the strong existing identity of the area, to provide high-quality affordable homes, great open spaces and business opportunities, helping to make this a beautiful and practical place to live and work.

He added: ‘We are really excited about the potential for this site and are pleased to be working with a design team which has the experience, expertise, and understanding, to create a high-quality built environment that reflects the importance that Peabody puts on place making and quality of urban design.’

Simon Goode, director at Lyndon Goode Architects, commented: ‘We look to develop the design of our projects based on an intimate understanding of context. At Fish Island, we are hoping to harness the characteristics that contribute to the area’s vibrancy, creating something playful and unique.’

The development is part of the wider Hackney Wick masterplan which will see 5,500 new homes built as part of the 2012 Olympic Games’ legacy.

The final phase of the scheme is expected to complete in 2020.
