Stoke Newington Road
Completing a street
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.
