The London School of Architecture Collective Peer Development programme is for all those concerned with the built environment and the future of cities.
Royal Borough of Greenwich needed a solution to two problems. The first: many larger family homes in the council’s stock were being under-occupied by older people and were desperately needed for new families. The second: there are numerous garage sites in the borough which were semi-derelict and had a negative effect on the public realm. This project aims to provide a solution to these two problems by building 24 new council rent homes across six sites, designed by Bell Phillips Architects in line with the HAPPI standards. This includes a particular focus on generous space, light and flexibility – aspects which are unusual in new council housing. The project has won a number of design awards and has been cited in best practice guidance for housing design.
