Join Phil Hamilton, co Director of Peter Barber Architects for a tour of Peckham Road Mansions, the recently completed tenement style mansion block located in a prominent location on the North side of Peckham Road in Southwark. The building’s stepped profile creates a sunny south facing roof terrace for each apartment and in time a lively and colourful back drop to the street.

Peter Barber Architects are an award-winning design orientated practice currently in the process of building hundreds of homes on complex urban and suburban sites across London. PBA are considered to be experts in achieving higher densities with medium to low rise buildings maximising the number of front doors to the street, and minimising the amount of communal corridor, deck and lifts. They see their projects as celebrations of the social life of the street. The Practice’s varied portfolio of work is underpinned by a consistent commitment to radical solutions and excellence in design. Peter Barber Architects’ innovative approach has secured many accolades and awards including numerous RIBA Awards, Masterplan, Regeneration and Housing Design Awards, including two housing projects being mid-listed for the RIBA Stirling ‘Building of the Year’ prize and another winning the NLA ‘Building of the Year’ prize. The practice has been UK Architect of the Year for Housing three times in the last decade.
