- London Borough of Newham
- Project Cost
This project is a template for high density, affordable, low energy housing on inner city sites and was won in an open design competition. In response to the constrained site we created six dwellings with large terraces to provide good amenity, sunlight and views. Code Level 5 is achieved via a highly insulated and airtight building fabric, large areas of photovoltaic cells on the roof, MVHR and grey water recycling. The blue engineering brick is reminiscent of Dockland’s Victorian industrial structures, and the gold copper cladding makes reference to the signage of the pub that previously stood on the site.
