Peckham Road Mansions
Peckham Road Mansions is a beautiful new residential building located in a prominent position on Peckham Road in the London Borough of Southwark. The proposal has been very carefully designed with an emphasis on its relationship with its urban context whilst providing maisonettes, courtyard houses and apartments of the highest quality. The building has a picturesque quality with the facades activated by numerous courtyards, roof terraces and large feature picture windows.
The building creates a positive urban edge with a lively street elevation of front doors, and deep reveal window seats providing natural surveillance. We envisage the terraces and courtyards ‘planted up’ with growies and pot plants and populated by their inhabitants on sunny days. We see a building enlivened by the activities of its occupants, their lives played out on its roofs and facades.
