Location: Canning Town, London
Client: London Borough of Newham
Project Year: Completed 2012
Cost: 500k - 2mThis 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 for Sustainable Homes Level 5 is achieved via a highly insulated and airtight building fabric, 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.
