Stockwell Park Estate, Stockwell
Network Homes have for the past 15 years undertaken the refurbishment and regeneration of the Stockwell Park Estate as part of their commitment following the successful transfer from Lambeth Council. Forming part of the Decent Homes programme the estate has undergone a transformation to address the anti-social behaviour and improve the living conditions of those living their. Tyler House is one of the last buildings to undergo improvement work.
Tyler House currently comprises three building elements organised around a central courtyard space, with a total of 48 one, two, three and four bedroom flats.
Rock Townsend were appointed initially to look into the refurbishment of the building. However, on further investigation it became clear that there were many issues with the building that would not be solved by a ‘light touch’ refurbishment. Lack of access and security in the courtyard, problems with ventilation, steep entrance steps and problems with security and anti-social behaviour could all continue unless a more invasive refurbishment was considered.
Our revised scheme involved the addition of a new build rooftop extension to deliver an additional 13 flats at 4th floor. The income generated by the sale of these apartments would allow us to undertake the more invasive refurbishment of the building.
The project is currently on site.
