Christian Action Housing Association asked us to redevelop this existing Brownfield site on Hoe Street in Walthamstow. It had originally been a glassworks factory (this required substantial remediation to remove all the broken glass).
The client wanted a more contemporary style of building which provided 3 x 3-bedroom maisonettes and 2 x 1-bedroom flats.
The scheme is located on a very busy road and parking had to be provided in the courtyard behind, via an archway.
To the rear, an access deck at second floor provides both a sun deck and access to the two second floor flats.
The original design incorporated small balconies to the front elevation, which were removed as part of a cost saving exercise.
