The Rosendale Estate is an existing Peabody Estate which lies within a Conservation Area near Hern Hill. As a result of a previous feasibility study carried out by Haworth Tompkins, five sites were identified for further development within the estate. Through the demolition of a derelict Community Hall and Estate Office, the proposal extends the estate with 8 new cottages, 4 new flats and a new Community Centre.
New additions are planned to reinforce the distinctive attributes of the conservation area, in particular the character of the blocks and cottages with high quality materials and detailing. The aim is to take reference from the existing, yet not slavishly copy it. The design and materiality of all the new proposals will be unified to allow all sites to be read as a cohesive stage development that complements the existing buildings.
