Homes for London

by Christine Wagg and James McHugh

Peabody has been designing and building high-quality homes for Londoners since 1862. In that year George Peabody, a wealthy American banker and philanthropist who had made London his home, launched the Peabody Donation Fund with the first of several gifts eventually amounting to half a million pounds. The Fund’s original purpose was to create better housing for ‘the poor of London’. Since then Peabody has stood at the forefront of the social housing movement in the capital, pioneering imaginative design and, in recent years, delivering a wide range of community programmes.

This richly illustrated book recounts the Peabody story from the first model dwellings to the ongoing regeneration of Thamesmead today. It is a story in which George Peabody’s enduring vision continues to inspire Peabody’s commitment to make London ‘a city of opportunity for all’ in the 21st century.
