Peckham PartnershipThe award-winning Peckham Partnership was established between housing associations, developers and the London Borough of Southwark to redevelop five estates with a notorious reputation for crime and social issues.
bptw partnership acted as joint masterplanners, and were subsequently appointed as architects for this large-scale regeneration of 2000 new mixed tenure homes. The project involved extensive community consultation to ensure a sustainable future for the local area and its built environment.
Safety, security, and social, economic and environmental issues were a paramount consideration throughout the design process and the creation of a community in which people will choose to live, work and play has been created.
The Peckham Partnership has forged relationships between key design team members, who have since worked together on other regeneration schemes throughout London. The partnership, and results of the scheme, has been recognised for its outstanding achievement with a host of awards including a shortlisting for the ODPM Sustainable Communities Award, special commendation at the Evening Standard Awards, the What House Best Partnership Development award and a Dragon Award.
Following the success of the Peckham Partnership the design team proceeded to undertake the masterplan, design and development of the Elmington neighbourhood, which has since received a Building for Life Standard from CABE.
