FCBStudios have been appointed to deliver 5,000 new homes for the renowned Housing Association Peabody. The framework panel includes Howarth Tompkins and Mecanno among others, the selected practices will contribute to the design of a flagship scheme in north London and schemes in Thamesmead to create ‘a new garden city’.
Peabody Development Director Claire Bennie said: ‘The site we chose at Archway for the design exercise was particularly tough, but the best entries showed a feeling for heritage, a bold approach to layout and a careful hierarchy of open spaces.”
The £120million framework will run until August 2018.
