LDS has joined the Major Projects Panel of one of London’s most respected and largest housing providers. Peabody London owns and manages more than 27,000 homes across the capital and has a development programme including the extensive regeneration of Thamesmead in South East London.

The Major Projects Panel is set to run for a four year period, and was procured through a competition to design a new mixed-use neighbourhood on the site of a former teaching hospital in Archway.

Lifschutz Davidson Sandilands’ response to the site included the innovative re-use of the best buidings on the site – a handsome 19th century hospital – and a strong hierarchy of open spaces and routes around new apartment blocks lining Highgate Hill. Rooftop gardens and a sunken commuity space give residents shelter from the busy roads and the generous residential amenity draws on the practice’s 20 years of experience in the sector.

Peabody’s Claire Bennie said of the appointments: “The very best candidates gave a lot of thought to Peabody’s history and how to make the most of the four year relationship with us and the other panel members in terms of standardisation and research.

Other panel members include Alison Brooks Architects, partnering LDS at two projects as part of the South Kilburn masterplan, and Bell Phillips Architects, currently working alongside the practice at the East Village development.
