Jestico + Whiles’ Greenwich Millennium Village fulfills a rare and significant opportunity to create a new riverside community with a strong emphasis on street life. The resulting neighbourhood of over 1,700 homes is both recognisable and unique, filled with abundant life, culture, green space and character.
In the southeast of the Greenwich Peninsula, nestled between the rumble of historic industrial wharfs and the swarm of cranes adorning new high-rise developments, lies a complex 12ha site with an unmistakeable character.
The final phase of Greenwich Millennium Village, planned as the culmination of a 25-year masterplan begun by Ralph Erskine, continues the playful evolutionary tradition of the local architectural language while also providing attractive homes, excellent amenities and beautiful open spaces.
The consortium, led by Jestico + Whiles in partnership with Peter Barber Architects and Studio 54 Architecture, developed designs true to the spirit and intentions of Erskine’s vision, but with a different innovative twist in every plot; the resulting spaces are recognisable, unique and filled with variety.
The designs are the result of a collaborative discussion about the ways in which people live and inhabit the city, as well as how these continue to change and evolve.
Particular focus was placed on providing a range in dwelling types, supporting a broad, inclusive social mix and a strong, diverse community.
