Contemporary in form and considerate in approach, the scheme features a series of high quality apartments above a row of retail units, creating a bold frontage towards Creek Road. This steps down to a more domestic scale along a quieter lane that runs parallel to the main road. Previously underused, it is now home to a row of mews houses, which back onto a popular park.

A cohesive material palette unites the scheme, pairing multi stock brick with intricate metal work. Here the modest yet thoughtful detailing draws inspiration from architectural elements across Greenwich, allowing the scheme to seamlessly transition into the surrounding conservation area.

Working closely with developer Peabody, Creek Road prides itself on contributing to the sense of community which has characterised Greenwich for generations, with the scheme connecting the Maritime Greenwich World Heritage Site, new developments and the historic town centre. As part of creating socially enriching development, the adjacent Up The Creek comedy club – a legendary local icon – has also become an integral part of the proposal.
