They are a unique practice, who are very good at dealing with spatial awareness, not making it look like a square box, which is ideal for a developer. They know Berkeley’s and industry criteria.

Originally an acclaimed RAF base, post WWII the Kidbrooke Village site became the Ferrier Estate, a 1,900-home single tenure estate with a brutal reputation. Built in 1968 it was deemed the height of post-modern brutalist architecture. Falling into disrepair in the 1980s, the site was marked for redevelopment and in 2007 Greenwich Council selected Berkeley Homes as the preferred development partner. Berkeley’s vision is to create a distinctive and green regeneration of the estate which integrates and connects with existing communities surrounding the site. Berkeley Homes commissioned CZWG in 2010 to revise a 7.3ha area of their 4000 homes’ masterplan (prepared by Lifschutz Davidson Sandilands) in order to unlock a detailed phase of circa 350 homes.
In 2012 CZWG secured planning permission for nine urban blocks on Berkeley Homes’ Kidbrooke Village masterplan. The site adjoins the suburb of Blackheath and benefits from a great sway of mature parkland. CZWG’s masterplan proposed a ‘Paragon Model’; integrating apartment buildings with the houses and echoing the varied scale of the villa in Blackheath and colonnades of the historic Paragon. Phase 4, the first three of the nine blocks, was completed in 2016. In 2015 CZWG achieved detailed planning for Phase 5 (the remaining 6 blocks). Berkeley Homes completed Block D (21 houses and 86 Apartments) in July 2017.
