Elmington Green is a housing development by Bellway Homes providing 247 dwellings over three sites (parcels 1 to 3) near the heart of Camberwell, London.
It consists of apartment blocks with dwellings ranging from 1-bed 2-person to 3-bed 5-person units; as well as 3-bed to 4-bed townhouses. A minimum 35% of the units are either social rent or shared ownership units to be provided for the Housing Association Family Mosaic.
The layout creates communal shared courtyard gardens at the heart of all three parcels and seeks to restore the traditional urban grain, consistent with the history of housing development in the area. Different brick types and textured patterns are used in each parcel whilst keeping a similar design language to provide a coherence between them but also to relate to their own immediate neighbouring context.
SEH took over parcels 1 and 2 after PTE had achieved planning consent. Parcel 3 has been re-designed by SEH with added dwellings and a new planning approval.
Parcels 1 and 2 are designed to Lifetime Homes standards and Southeast London Housing Partnership Wheelchair Housing Guide requirements. Parcel 3 is designed to the latest Approved Documents Part M4 (2) and M4 (3). A Secured by Design Silver Award has been achieved for all parcels.
