Where: Havil Street, Camberwell

Who For: Family Mosaic (now Peabody)

What: 41 units 

Architect: Conran + Partners

This development in Camberwell involves the regeneration of two sites to provide homes for local people, including properties that will be offered for private sale. It includes three separate buildings that includes a five-storey apartment block providing 12 residential units as well as a number of family-sized maisonettes. The development is a strong mix of three, two and one bedroom properties with a communal amenity space at third floor level.

CMA Planning secured permission for the scheme in October 2014. Because the two sites sat opposite each other, on other sides of the road, two applications were submitted, but these were approved in a linked manner to ensure economies of scale relating to tenure mix and w/c unit provision could be maximised. Other key issues that were addressed included the relationship with an adjoining listed building, residential quality of the proposed homes and height / massing of the blocks and their relationship to the surrounding townscape.

The scheme completed in 2017.
