The Christopher Boone's Almshouses development in Lewisham, south London, designed by PRP

£26m scheme delivers 92 homes on redeveloped south London site

PRP Architects has announced the completion of a 92-home redevelopment of a group of 1960s almshouses in south London in a £26m project for One Housing Group and charity Merchant Taylors’ Boone’s.

The project has replaced the Christopher Boone’s Almshouses in Belmont Park Road, Lewisham, with a three-element scheme featuring a “later living” block for older people, 26 new homes for sale, and two family homes for social rent on a separate site nearby.

Senior partner Anne-Marie Nicholson said the elderly-focused element of the development centred around a landscaped courtyard that provided space for socialising and hobbies.
