Technical design solutions including offsite construction deliver a sustainable residential development that meets the Lifetime Homes, HCA, and London Housing Guide criteria.
The London Borough of Hackney required a new build residential development to provide private sale and shared ownership homes, in addition to office and retail space for the local community.

• The site’s challenging location near London Overground railway arches and between existing residential properties
