St Paul's House, an elegant 1920s building on Deptford High Street which was formerly the rectory for Thomas Archer's baroque church, St Paul's Deptford, further down the High Street. Ash Sakula championed its reuse and demonstrated how remodelled and extended it provided the affordable housing and retained important heritage and character on the street.
St Paul's House now provides eight affordable apartments for Peabody within the upper floors of the old building and in a new roof extension, three new-build townhouses behind, and two restaurants on the ground floor, one within the former building, the other below the townhouses.
Between old and new is a small landscaped courtyard with a freestanding lift and stair tower giving access to all eleven homes.
