GRANTED PLANNING

Location:

HACKNEY, LONDON

 

The scheme is a mixed used development comprising of 50% commercial floor space and 50% residential containing 22 flats.

 

The site is situated to the rear of a grade 2 star listed property which once housed the Elizabeth Fry Refuge for women prisoners. The scheme responds to the constraints of the site which is heavily developed on all sides. The use of angled planes creates a dynamic movement and interest in form whilst practically allows the scheme to avoid impacting on neighbouring rights of light.
