Peabody affordable housing on Mint St, Bethnal Green, East London by Pitman Tozer.

The design was inspired by the early housing schemes developed for the poor by the Peabody Trust, set up in 1862 by American banker George Peabody.

After Peabody’s grant from the government was cut from 50% to 20%, this is their first scheme to include 1/3 private sales with the rest shared-ownership and affordable rent.
