We have designed 84 high quality homes on Knight's Walk as part of an ambitious Estate Regeneration programme being brought forward by Homes for Lambeth on behalf of Lambeth Council.
The scheme has been developed through close working with the local community, providing new homes for existing and new residents. Our design builds on the legacy of George Finch’s work at Cotton Gardens who designed dwellings to suit different lifestyles and facilities that enriched the overall sense of community. Our scheme completes a new urban block containing a wide variety of dwelling types and tenures.
The building bridges between the more historic context to the north and the highly regarded Cotton Gardens Estate to the south west and reaches 7 stories along Kennington Lane.
The new buildings step carefully along their length to create a varied building frontage that supports interaction along Knight's Walk and makes the most of the open views towards the park and play space. The highly articulated façades and roofline echoes Finch’s work.
