Burridge Gardens Phase 2


The second phase of the regeneration of this 1930s Peabody estate, Burridge Gardens, provides 198 affordable homes over three buildings – one being a mixed-use building featuring a community centre with 54no. homes for older persons above. This sort of accommodation is in short supply in Wandsworth and across London, and Peabody are committed to delivering the very best accommodation for this vulnerable group in Wandsworth and across their portfolio. This submission is specifically for this building.

The 54 self-contained apartments for social rent are built above the community centre, eight of them fully wheelchair accessible. All have generous balconies, staggered to maximise opportunities for neighbourly conversation. Communal areas on the third floor include lounges and a terrace overlooking the main square. Here, you can also find assisted bathrooms, a laundry, spa and hairdressers and a guest suite. Above the entrance to the community centre is a ‘tree of modern life’ sculpture, one of several brick artworks planned for each phase of the development created by Rodney Harris and Valda Jackson, depicting the past, present, and future of the estate and its residents. In total, the Burridge Gardens regeneration project will provide 658 new homes for existing residents and newcomers, 51% affordable, and over 13,000 sqm of open space in a new connected neighbourhood. All three phases and every building in the masterplan have been designed by Hawkins\Brown.
