Architecture in Schools

Architecture in Schools

Every year, we take part in Open City’s Architecture in Schools programme. This year, Gui and Tati ran workshops with the Year 5s at St Paul’s Primary, Tower Hamlets. They made models out of spaghetti and marshmallows and visited interesting buildings in the area. The theme was Reimagine London.

Watts Close, the first of our projects in partnership with Haringey Council, has been unanimously approved. The net-zero carbon scheme will provide 12 new flats and six family houses for council rent, contributing to the council’s ambitious new-build direct development programme.

Two of our low-carbon new build housing projects for LB Newham’s Affordable Homes programme, Leather Gardens and Sutton Road, are part of a case study by Public Practice just released. The study discusses how to make the financial case for achieving Passivhaus standard.

 

Corner site takes shape

Corner site takes shape

Malmesbury Terrace for client LB Newham is on site! It will deliver 15 affordable dual-aspect homes on 12 disused garage sites. The site constraints have led to a site-specific design that both respects neighbouring buildings and emphasises the building’s prominent corner position.

Our affordable housing project at Idmiston Road for client LB Newham and built by Rooff is going up! It will deliver eight new homes on a disused garage site. The shape and position of the 4-storey block makes sense of the disparate forms and alignments of adjacent buildings.
