This project is the first phase in the redevelopment of the estate by social housing provider Peabody. The architecture of the project adopted the rich tradition of brick architecture in Clapham and of Peabody who spearheaded London’s first social housing projects in the Victorian era.

To achieve this the design we took advantage of modern off-site solutions for brick arches, soffits and panels and married it with conventional brickwork techniques. Lee Marley was able to provide a total facade solution utilising our own in-house steel fixers to install a complex secondary steel structure to support the off-site manufactured products. Working closely with manufacturer IG, Lee Marley developed an effective just in time solution for delivery and fitting on this constrained urban site. Traditional brickwork techniques were employed to install brick frieze’s as facade features.
