Pocket Living wins a 2019 RIBA award

Pocket Living’s affordable housing scheme in Mapleton Crescent has been awarded the prize for its attractive design, high standard of accommodation and pioneering construction method.

The development of 53 first time buyer affordable flats and 36 homes for the open market is beside the River Wandle south of the Southside Shopping Centre. It was built using the latest modular construction techniques, which sees completed flats being fully assembled at a factory before being transported to site and installed by crane. Modular construction has shaved around six months off the tower’s total build time
