Peabody Avenue has been returned to its pre war-damaged state with a building based on an understanding of the characteristics of not only the form, texture and materiality of the estate but also of the community which wished to remain there.

To the rear generous balconies cantilever from the circulation walkway and enliven the view from the railway and embankment.
