Braund Mansions

Braund Mansions (Block 5) is the first building to be delivered as part of the main masterplan of the Winstanley & York Road estates. The previously delivered Phase 0, had relocated the school and church, clearing the way for this much needed affordable housing to be built on the site.


In total 126 family homes will be built across these three inter-connecting blocks, with homes ranging in sizes to meet the housing need. This includes a six-bedroom, ten-person accessible apartment, designed with a specific family in mind.


The first phase of the wider regeneration includes three buildings that form the northern entrance to the site facing York Road and will create a new street frontage. The building delivers the first reprovided homes for the local authority, with extensive housing needs survey informing the housing mix and allocations.

Bruand Mansions provides 126 new homes, 16 of which are wheelchair accessible homes. The remaining 110 are fully adaptable homes.

Braund Mansions is made up of three parts, each served by it’s own entrance;
• Core A: 55 new homes (14 stories) including a new supermarket
• Core B: 21 new homes (5 stories)
• Core C: 50 new homes (11 stories)

The three blocks are designed to complement the emerging character of York Road and will be the first of five towers to be delivered within the masterplan along this corridor, stepping up in height to the south to 32 storeys further along York Road. The two lower buildings reflect the mansion blocks that will be delivered around the park edge, red brick facades with precast banding details and steel metal balustrades to balconies that reflect the historic mansion block buildings that form the character of nearby Battersea.

Two bedroom four person home
Six bedroom ten person home

Communications & Engagement

Community engagement at Braund Mansions

In June 2024 we held a festival day in the meanwhile space outside Braund Mansions. The day was free for all residents to attend, and had a mixture of activities to keep people involved. Alongside sports, craft, food stall by Waste Not Want Not, we also had a regeneration update stand, and an activity to gather feedback on what the meanwhile space should be used for.

We also created some stair core signage designs for Braund Mansions, and used the event to gather votes for the naming of Block 5.

Building naming

Working with Wandsworth Council’s regeneration team, and local historian Jeanne Rathbone, HTA’s Communication team designed a series of window displays celebrating local trailblazing women. This display was also used to inform the naming of Block 5 – Braund Mansions, named after Elizabeth Braund, 1921-2013 who was the founder of Providence House, Falcon Road, a purpose built Christian Youth and Community Centre.

Providence House have been a long term collaborator with the regeneration project, with many of our engagement sessions involving young people from the centre.

All residents moving into Braund Mansions had the chance to vote on the name from a selection of the women used as part of the window graphics.
