Pepys Estate

London, United Kingdom
1 of 2Edinburgh University

The Pepys Estate is a social housing estate in the Deptford area of Lewisham, London, designed by Roger Westman.

It was officially opened on 13 July 1966 by Lord Mountbatten.

The estate is made up of several 4 storey blocks, ten 8 storey blocks and three of London's tallest tower blocks at 24 storeys tall. The 8 storey blocks have a strange internal arrangement in that from the front door to each flat, you either go up or down a short flight of steps, and the floors are on three split levels. With the exception of the 24 storey towers, the blocks are built of red brick. When completed, the estate won a Civic Trust design award and Westman himself received an award from the Royal Institute of British Architects.
