The rebuilding of the South Lambeth estate
Homes for Lambeth are adding new and better homes to South Lambeth estate, and replacing some of the older, less efficient blocks. Architects Pollard Thomas Edwards have worked closely with residents to create a masterplan that will deliver the right homes and encourage a neighbourly estate. It will feel safer and better connected to the surrounding area and have more usable shared outdoor space. There will be 362 new homes altogether, a mix of apartments, maisonettes and a small number of mews houses, which will be designed to look good and be more efficient to run. This includes 51 brand new replacement homes for secure tenants already living on the estate and 34 new homes for people on the council’s housing list.
The first phase of the plans for South Lambeth estate will be a new block built on Dorset Road, parallel to Wimborne House, with a mix of flats and maisonettes, a shared roof garden and improved outside courtyard area between the two buildings. It will deliver 30 new affordable homes including 18 at council-level rent for existing secure tenants to eventually move into, upon completion.
Phase 2 will involve replacing the existing low-rise blocks, allowing us to build an additional 332 homes once detailed planning permission has been achieved.
Hill Group, the contractor who will be building the first part of the new estate, and Homes for Lambeth, held a meet the contractor event which you can watch the recording of below.
