Kidbrooke Village in Greenwich features a range of bricks from Michelmersh.
Kidbrooke in Greenwich is at the centre of a masterplan to transform 109 hectares of derelict and deprived south-east London land into a contemporary community environment.
Berkeley Group has specified Michelmersh Freshfield Lane Selected Darks, Danehill Yellows and a bespoke ‘Kidbrooke’ Synthesis blend of bricks for the Kidbrooke scheme.
Frank Hanna, Joint Chief Executive Officer of Michelmersh, commented: “Its tremendous to see our sustainable and durable products continue to be specified in substantial and influential urban regeneration developments such as these. Along with specifying our Freshfield Lane clamp fired stock bricks, Berkeley have produced a high standard of contemporary elevations, perfectly suiting the local vernacular; this will no doubt be appreciated by future Kidbrooke residents for many generations to come.
We are very proud to be involved with this excellent development by the Berkeley Group and we will endeavour to continue offering the highest quality products, services and craftsmanship.”
The design by architects Lifshutz Davidson Sandilands received planning consent in 2009 with construction starting later that year. The village is being built to high levels of energy efficiency – codes 3 and 4 homes, for the different phases. There will be an energy centre in the middle and extensive use of renewables, with a new park including ecology and wetland zones.
