Peabody Avenue, London : Pimlico Residential Building

London Housing : SW1 Residential Building – design by Haworth Tompkins

30 Jun 2012

Peabody Avenue, Pimlico

Design: Haworth Tompkins

RIBA Awards 2012 Citation:

Peabody Avenue, Pimlico, London SW1V

Peabody Avenue has been returned to its pre war-damaged state with a building based on an understanding of the characteristics of not only the form, texture and materiality of the estate but also of the community which wished to remain there.

The five storey blocks, organised around three vertical circulation cores, are built in warm, yellow stock bricks with windows well set back into reveals to acknowledge the robust nature of the existing Avenue. To the rear generous balconies cantilever from the circulation walkway and enliven the view from the railway and embankment.

The new building displays the strength, resilience and confidence of the existing and is an exemplar of good housing and of place-making.
