Old Peckham LibraryInvited compitition
Deft.Space was invited to submit proposals for a new build social housing above a ground floor community space on the site of the Old Peckham Library.
We proposed a collaborative approach working closely with local residents and community groups that would deliver a development that fits sensitively into place, knits well into the existing community and is environmentally sustainable. In response to the proximity of the site to existing residential buildings, we developed a proposal that would sit well alongside side its neighbours whilst respectfully facing the existing community of Goldsmith Estate.
A plant filled communal roof terrace would provide opportunities for residents to meet and a play space for young children. Winter gardens for each flat would provide private amenity space whilst helping to reduce the negative impact from noise and poor air quality from Peckham Hill Street and Peckham Road.
