A 43 unit residential scheme for East Thames Group, comprising a mix tenure of social rented and shared ownership units.
The scheme is an estate regeneration replacing a series of unpopular 1970’s buildings. The units have been designed to the generous space standards of the East Thames Housing Design Guide, Lifetime Homes and achieve Code for Sustainable Homes Level 4. Ten percent of units are designed for wheelchair users.
A perimeter block of houses, maisonettes and apartments step up from three to five storeys and enclose a quiet, south-facing courtyard with private gardens, balconies and a landscaped communal garden.
Our design provides privacy and security through private defensible spaces to the front of each house and ground floor maisonette. Enclosed winter gardens and recessed terraces provide privacy to upper floors on Blackhorse Road. The architecture draws on qualities of the Warner Estate’s local vernacular: good proportions, clean lines, large picture windows and careful detailing to create an architecture of distinction.
