Five storey, L-shaped residential block that provides a termination and focal point for the avenue
The block completes the southern end of the 200 meter long Peabody Avenue, which had been left incomplete after being damaged by war-time bombing.
The five-storey block contains 55 new flats and includes a southern gateway to the estate in the form of a wide, double height opening which provides a defined threshold while maintaining long views down the Avenue from this approach.
The qualities of the existing avenue are the reference point for the materials and details; masonry facades with warm, yellow stock bricks and paler details to match the existing walls. A simple attic storey, with light scoops to bring daylight into top-floor flats, reinforces the articulation of the existing roofscape.
