Harper Square, 153-163 Harper Road

Following the completion of the Wansey Street Housing project – the pilot scheme for the regeneration of the Elephant & Castle – dRMM have designed this Harper Road site. A series of individual buildings linked with shared stairwells creates a perimeter edge to a communal open court. This arrangement, and the coloured glazed terracotta composition, creates a cohesive whole whilst defining smaller groups, encouraging a sense of collectivity together with individual identity among the residents.
