46 years on…

Tulse Hill_Hollamby_1969

Thanks to Sturgis, who are undertaking a green retrofit feasibility study for Cressingham Gardens, for sending us the set of original Tulse Hill drawings produced by Ted Hollamby for Lambeth Council in 1969. The beautiful cover image alone hints at more sensitive approach to urban design – the entire estate was planned around the existing trees on the site which give Cressingham Gardens so much of its character today. Here is Bodley Manor Way in drawings and in full use complete with kitchen gardens 46 years later.

We have since used the drawings in workshops with residents – a good starting point for thinking about the voids was to be able to discuss the existing designs and what to take from them. The full set is uploaded here: Full version Cress 1969 plans.
