Multiple Awards for Peabody at the Sunday Times British Homes Awards
Peabody - which merged with Family Mosaic in July this year - was awarded Homebuilder of the Year at the Sunday Times British Homes Awards. This latest accolade comes at the heels of Peabody's recent success at the 2017 National Housing Awards.
Focusing on design excellence and celebrating the quality of the new homes and communities created in the UK, the awards are judged by an independent panel including designers, developers and industry experts.
The coveted 'Affordable Development of the Year' award went to our infill development at Cleverly Estate in Hammersmith - an estate of historical significance, built in 1928 in the style of Sir Christopher Wren. Designed by Lyndon Goode Architects, the scheme has transformed two brownfield sites of dilapidated outbuildings into buildings that finish the estate’s courtyards, completing the formal planning of the Victorian estate with high quality architecture that references the existing palate of materials and detailing.
Peabody also won ‘Development of the Year (200 homes or less)’ for the first phase of our flagship St John’s Hill regeneration project opposite Clapham Junction. Completed in April 2016, phase 1 includes 153 new homes, high quality landscaping and play areas. The scheme was also highly commended in the ‘Apartment Development’ category and architects Hawkins\Brown were named ‘Architect of the Year’.
Brendan Sarsfield, Chief Executive of Peabody said:
“Design excellence and building homes of the highest quality is at the heart of our work to create great places where people want to live. We’re committed to providing homes for people on average incomes or lower, so are very proud to see Cleverly recognised. To win Homebuilder of the Year acknowledges the collaboration and hard work of various colleagues and partners and we’re delighted with the result.”
Phil Catcheside, Partner at Hawkins\Brown Architects said:
‘We are very pleased that all the hard work that went into crafting the first phase of St John’s Hill has been recognised. To also win ‘Architect of the Year’ at the same time as Peabody wins ‘Homebuilder of the Year’ shows that a shared vision of quality and a good relationship between client and architect can produce great buildings.’
