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 its 4000 homes’ masterplan (prepared by Lifschutz Davidson Sandilands) in order to unlock a detailed phase of circa 350 homes.
In 2012, CZWG secured a hybrid outline and detail planning permission for nine urban blocks on the site now known as Meridian Gate. The site adjoins the suburb of Blackheath and benefits from a great sway of mature parkland. CZWG’s revised layout 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. CZWG has since taken Phase 4 through to completion and achieved full planning consent for Phase 5. Berkeley Homes commenced building Phase 5 in 2016 and CZWG is retained on behalf of the Client to maintain the design standards throughout the construction programme.
