De Beauvoir Estate

We’re developing plans to build hundreds of modern, high-quality homes, focusing on underused, Council-owned land across the De Beauvoir estate, alongside wider improvements to existing homes and public areas, and a new space for the tenants and residents’ association (TRA).

In the first phase of new homes, we’ve been working closely with residents on plans for 189 much needed new homes at 5 sites.

In the second phase, we’re working with the same design team to develop plans for sites around the Queensbridge and De Beauvoir neighbourhood housing office, to provide even more new genuinely affordable homes.

We’ve also started the process of appointing architects to look at how we could redevelop sites around the Queensbridge and De Beauvoir neighbourhood housing office, to provide even more new genuinely affordable homes.

But it’s not just about housing. We’ll also improve some existing homes, provide better public spaces and build a new neighbourhood housing office and affordable workspace.

Phase 1 proposals presentation

This video is a presentation of the phase 1 proposals by our architects.

If you would like to skip to a particular section, see the timings of the different sections of the presentation.

In the presentation, the architect refers to ‘loggia’ an architectural feature which is a covered outdoor corridor which is open at the sides. He also speaks about dual and triple aspect homes. This means homes that have windows on two or three walls, allowing for views in more than just one direction.
