Stoke Newington Road
Ending up a frontage
Concept to Completion
We redeveloped this vacant site in Hackney to create a dynamic mixed-use project for Metropolitan Housing Trust. The distinctive scheme, above existing retail space on Stoke Newington High Street, provides 38 modern, mixed-tenure apartments, around an elevated courtyard
To contextualise the project, we used mutable red brick, and emulated the rhythm of the road’s existing building widths. At Barretts Grove the four-storey block steps up two levels to meet the seven-storey, zinc-clad volume, which intersects the brickwork and cantilevers over the shop front, bringing a modern articulation to this corner of the high street.
The development provides socially rented and shared ownership apartments, ranging from one to four bedrooms. Each apartment features large windows and a terrace or Juliet balcony overlooking the central courtyard - designed to offer both landscaped views and communal outdoor space for residents to enjoy.
