Cressingham Gardens, Lambeth

Cressingham Gardens is a late-modernist housing estate of 306 homes in Lambeth, overlooking Brockwell Park. We were appointed by Lambeth Council to work with residents over an 18 month period in a collaborative design process, to explore options for the future of the estate.

The existing housing has strong architectural qualities, which many of the residents enjoy, but is in a state of disrepair. The team spent a great deal of energy exploring the issues and implications of redevelopment, using a wide range of engagement tools.
