Success House was conceived as a landmark building which forms a key component in the regeneration of the Coopers Road Estate, currently being carried out by the Peabody Trust and the London Borough of Southwark.

The brief was to redevelop a Brownfield site occupied by a disused three storey Victorian factory building into a new build residential development. The scheme consists of 46 apartments over 7 storeys of accommodation with a Youth Centre and Commercial Unit at ground floor. The development is a mixture of 1, 2 and 3 bedroom units for both social rented and intermediate/shared ownership.

The site is located off the Old Kent Road in South East London. Is to achieve Code for Sustainable Homes Level 3 and achieves the 10% requirement of carbon reduction through on site renewables with the use of a Biomass woodchip boiler.
