Thamesmead Towers — London

Client
Gallions Peabody Group

Collaborators
Philip Pank / Max Fordham / Conisbee / Archimetrics / Levitt Bernstein

5th Studio have been appointed by Peabody as architects for the transformation of 13 towers in Thamesmead. In parallel with the arrival of Crossrail, and the development of the new Housing Zone (Mecannoo and Proctor Matthews), this work forms a critical part of the Peabody Vision for the fundamental re-casting of Thamesmead as an exciting new quarter for London.

The towers formed part of the original first phase of Thamesmead development in the late 1960s/early 1970s, and were built using a balency structural concrete panel system - prefabricated on site.

The project will significantly improve both the character and the environmental performance of the towers, addressing issues of comfort, fuel poverty and maintenance, as well as of neighbourhood and identity.
