Erith Park is a transformational regeneration project in one of London’s poorest boroughs making a significant contribution London’s affordable housing provision. The development adopted a ‘tenure-blind’ approach through a consistent architectural language and quality with 80% of the new homes affordable tenure.
A series of apartment buildings address the busy North End Road. The changing mass of these buildings helps to articulate and reveal the entrances and routes into the site and adds variety to the streetscape. These buildings are shaped to reduce their mass through staggered roof terraces down towards the domestic scale of the contemporary terrace housing behind. A shared street space forms the centrepiece of the first phase while improved landscaping further enhances the scheme.
