- Project: Marshgate Lane
- Location: Stratford, Hackney Wick
- Description: New build housing scheme providing 89 homes
- Value: Undisclosed
- Client: City & Suburban Homes
- Status: Planning Granted
Located in the London Borough of Newham and in the London Legacy Development Corporation (LLDC) Marshgate Lane delivers 89 new homes on a former disused brownfield site in Stratford. The scheme highlights the potential of high density living designed around a series of shared spaces linked by a central linear park. These homes are a continuation of research into the benefits of deck living in housing and it’s ability to form new communities.
Within the constraints of the narrow site the circulation route is folded and stacked to form interconnected multi-leveled tiered gardens surrounded by clusters of mixed tenure new homes. When opened out into a linear form, the spine takes on the characteristics of a pathway ascending through the development, breaking out onto a series of landscaped courtyard and terraces.
