Delivering low energy, affordable and much needed social housing

Ladywell Park Gardens
Ladywell Lewisham Housing

A consultation led design process will deliver a mix of one, two and three bedroom apartments providing 47 council homes for local families on the housing waiting list and 55 shared ownership tenure homes, with priority given to people already living and working in Lewisham.

102 affordable homes in a series of mid-rise apartment blocks around a new public garden. The new homes are arranged across four buildings ranging from three to seven storeys across the site. The simple forms sensitively reunite the existing context - the residential neighbourhood to the east with Lewisham High Street in the west, whilst the overall use of materials reflect the rich palette of brickwork in Ladywell.

Design in the Community

The homes will be in a prominent location on Lewisham High Street, we sought engagement from a wide range of people from the community. A diverse mix of enthusiastic consultees from became ‘design champions’ to lead on the landscape proposals across a series of engaging workshops.

In addition, we worked with artist Jake Sherwood to lead design days with local primary school children, and with the Construction Youth Trust to run detailed architectural workshops at secondary schools in the borough.  This all helped to foster and develop ideas that are appropriate, nuanced, and homegrown in Ladywell.

We are committed to building new homes across the borough to help tackle the housing crisis and help people on our housing waiting list. As well as delivering 47 high-quality council homes for local residents, this development will also provide more shared ownership homes to help local people get onto the housing ladder.
