Woodberry Park is the largest and the best known partnership between a local authority housing agency and a private developer. We are the lead architects for a number of sites with in phase one and phase two, developing detailed designs within the principles of the original masterplan.
The scale, layout and mix of this scheme was established through extensive negotiation between Genesis Housing, Hackney Homes, the local residents forum and the local planning authority. In response to the availability of funding from the Homes and Communities Agency, this site is entirely made up of flats for social rent, balanced by intermediate and private flats in other phases.
The Horston and Sherwood site is named after the Council housing blocks it replaces, it (re)forms the junction of Woodberry Grove and Seven Sisters Road, adjacent to a Grade II Listed Primary School.
We are unusual among Berkeley's panel of architects, in that we design schemes and obtain planning consent, and then work with the construction team to deliver housing on site.
