a new community

Abbey Place delivers 245 new mixed-tenure, one to three bedroom homes across two buildings with roof terraces. Homes are linked by a shared residents’ garden, which sits above amenity at the ground-level. Apartments have been designed to be both highly energy efficient and passive in nature to minimise environmental impact and maximise quality of living. Each home has been designed ‘inside-out’ to maximise the use of space and utilise a sustainable passive design approach providing natural ventilation and lighting. With an innovative material palette, concrete soffits and exposed services bring a ‘loft-style’ to the affordable market.

Wherever possible the homes have been orientated to provide dual aspect facing frontages, with the arrangement of accommodation designed to maximise the sites east and west locale.

The extensive, high quality and conveniently located private and communal amenity space will help to bring new residents together and the public realm encourages them to interact with the wider neighbourhood and to connect the neighbourhood with the development.

abbey wood rejuvenation

Abbey Place aims to establish a bold set-piece of high-quality buildings in conjunction with the emerging Crossrail Station, the new Abbey Wood Elizabeth Line station and the regeneration of Thamesmead estate.

Abbey Place will create a benchmark for the ongoing rejuvenation of an historic residential community and a landmark development representing high standard living. The buildings will create a new sense of place at the heart of Abbey Wood. Using a palette of bold, robust and economic materials, the character of the proposed scheme reinforces the notion of a cluster of new buildings with its existing and future neighbours. Working with the constraints of a compact yet well connected site, Abbey Place will become a marker for Abbey Wood as a great place to live, shop, work and relax.
