Housing
Program: 230 Homes
Client: Barratt Homes
Phase: completed, 2012

Collaborating with Allies and Morrison, and Glen Howells Architects, Maccreanor Lavington developed the regeneration plans for this former hospital site in East London for Barrat and Circle Anglia.

The masterplan for the site provides 964 homes, an NHS health care facility, new community facilities and one hectare of parks and gardens. 50% of the housing provided is affordable and 30% across all tenures is family housing.

Block B is a 230 residential development and forms one of three urban courtyard blocks. Maccreanor Lavington felt that when dealing with the larger units (three bed and above) it is important to consider child densities - a relationship to a good quality, external space is essential. This does not have to be a traditional garden but instead could be a roof terrace, deck, large balcony or loggia space. The remaining flats have large steel balconies, which use a pattern derived from fragments of the cast iron decoration of the original Victorian hospital.
