suttonca beat tough competition including Squire & Partners, Jestico & Whiles and Stock Woolstencroft, to secure the opportunity to work with Telford Homes Plc in the creation of residential accommodation adjacent to one of London’s busiest emerging Metropolitan centres.
The winning approach was to create a tri partite proposition composed of solid masonry that was not typical of the built tall residential projects within East London, which are mainly exercises in glass curtain walling.
The London Legacy Development Corporation (LLDC) approved the new 33 storey residential building comprising 181 dwellings during 2013.
The design, inspired by some of the most successful tall buildings of the 20th century, is solid in appearance with elegantly proportioned windows and provides vertically stacked amenity spaces arranged to capture the most south facing outlook for the residents. The top of the building comprises conceptual ‘water towers’ as penthouse spaces.
The proposal will provide 24 affordable homes, comply with the London Housing Design Guide and Lifetime Homes, and Code 4 for Sustainable Homes.
The building provides an active frontage with a double height reception space over looked by the resident’s gymnasium. A variety of balcony, terrace and winter garden amenity spaces create spectacular views across the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park. Streetscape and public realm benefits include a new tree lined pedestrian and cycle route.
The building will comprise both market and affordable homes and the design generates an improvement of 25% over current energy efficiency regulations.
Completion due in 2018.
