Meet the team working at The Carpenters

Populo Living

Populo Living was formerly known as Red Door Ventures. It was not just a name change; our focus changed. We are Newham’s housing company; we are tasked by Mayor Rokhsana Fiaz (OBE), and the Council to meet their priority to provide at least 50% genuinely affordable homes on development sites owned by the council. Our commitment is to make sure you get all the information you need to make the best choices for you and your family.

Meet the architects

Proctor and Matthews have completed buildings in several different sectors. Projects include the Greenwich Millennium Village and Abode in Harlow, which won a Royal Institute of British Architects Award in 2005. The practice has also designed the Gorilla Kingdom at London Zoo, a building for the University of Brighton in Hastings and Abode at Great Kneighton in Cambridgeshire – a mixed-use community containing over 300 homes. In addition, Horsted Park – a mixed-use development by the practice in Kent - was named Housing Project of the Year in the 2013 Building Awards. Link to website:

Resident steering group

The Mayor has made a commitment to the residents of The Carpenters Estate that the council will work together with them, to restore the estate. As a consultative forum, The Carpenters Destination steering group uses the community’s feedback to input into key design and planning application milestones.
