GHA has used strongly coloured structural frames for ten residential blocks to provide a cohesive identity for this distinctive, fine-grained island community. It is located on a 4.7ha brownfield site on a peninsula between the River Lea and the Thames.
Key to the development is striking the balance between residential and active daytime uses which has led to a complex mix of workspace uses that will bring a range of makers and artists to the island.
The scheme weaves together apartments, a network of walkways and opens spaces and residents’ membership facilities including a clubhouse, screening room, spa and pools.
