Building H4 & H5 replace two existing 1960s blocks as part of the wider Clapham Park Masterplan to regenerate a large area of substandard pre-war housing in the London Borough of Lambeth. The development provides high quality housing and services reconnecting people to the open space and supporting community interaction. The project provides 70 affordable and private residential flats over two buildings with commercial on the ground level of building H5. The layout of the buildings and landscaping was driven by the desire to encourage activity and generate a sense of community.
The design features high levels of daylight, underground refuse bins and bike storage with-in the flats. In particular the brickwork has been thoughtfully considered to relate to the local context and provide a lasting and durable appearance that will become a benchmark for future development in the area.
