Here is the first 360 new homes of Lendlease’s Elephant Park masterplan, replacing the Heygate Estate. The scheme uses three plots within the masterplan: a mix of townhouses, mansion blocks and a tower each with their own garden, terrace or balcony amid green spaces, so it feels like a small village. A range of architectural forms and typologies means each of the nine buildings has its own character.
All use different brick colours, so can be read as individual while sharing some characteristics. Different designs sit happily within the streetscape, harmonising the new scheme with its context. For example, opposite an existing bay-windowed terrace is a modern take on the bay window. Charming landscaping between the buildings includes children’s play equipment, a bug hotel and the customary hedges, planting beds and trees.
