The Wyemead Crescent development is situated on the northern side of a 1960s Greater London Authority housing estate in Chingford. The site originally formed part of the estate that had fallen into decay over time and was subject to anti-social behavior, resulting in the area being closed off for a number of years.
The contemporary design of the timber frame dwellings with metal roofs, balcony features and rendered finish to the external walls is in juxtaposition to the brick buildings that form the existing estate.
The lower northern section of the site comprises 6 x 2-bedroom flats on 3 levels, with the first and second floor flats incorporating external balconies.
The upper section of the site comprises 2 x 3-storey townhouse style dwellings, with external balcony areas to both sides of the buildings at first or second floor level.
This upper part of the development also includes a dedicated 2-storey wheelchair house with through-floor lift, wet room shower areas and a fully flexible wheelchair kitchen, including adjustable height worktops and wall units. It benefits from a large external balcony at first floor level with a covered car parking area below.
