Elephant and Castle, London

The massive regeneration project for the Elephant and Castle, includes three Eco-Towers by Yeang on the east, and a central transportation - railway interchange, with a further project by Foster and Partners to the west, surrounding a major plaza. The overall project also incorporates social housing, which is financed by revenue from the towers, intended for private ownership. As well as a huge shopping and leisure facility, and other communal provisions, the development envisages three major parks.

Veang's three buildings, known as the Garden Towers, represent his first competition success in London that may form a built proposition. In most major respects these towers, which vary in height between 12 and 35 storeys, repeat much of the concept of the Bishopsgate Towers, as a precedent. That is to say, that building configuration, orientation, façade design and landscaping policy directly reflect the earlier model. However, in this instance the lifts and staircores are brought together into a more compact arrangement, but again within a centralised, landscaped, access-galleried atrium. The typical floor-plan, for instance of Eco-Tower 1, is again a two-sided arrangement, which offers a variety of unit-orientation and outward views. To the overall form, in addition to the skycourts and apartment balconies, Yeang has added generous sky-pod' volumes for communal facilities and the summit incorporates a major winter garden, which outwardly signals the building's ecological presence.

• healthy mix ol residents within the same building Through 'vertical zoning', resident types are grouped according to accommodation preferences (single units, family unity luxury apartments), yet common facilities (eg parks shopping sheets, etc ) are shared close proximity to basic amenities such as the local grocery store postal boxes, chemist, etc These are all located within the ground development and/oi within the hjwei a healthy landscaped environment svith spatial progresses ol public open spaces ipaikx in the sky) to semi private (entrance courts) to private open spaces (balconies)
