The 40 new apartments, including 4 specially adapted wheelchair apartments, are an exemplar for new public housing in the Borough. The project was designed in compliance with the Code for Sustainable Homes Level 4 and in accordance with best practice as represented by Lifetime Homes and Secure by Design.
The tight infill site is located at the intersection of two busy streets and overlooks the beautiful grounds of East London’s oldest church – St Dunstan’s – which dates from the 10th century.
The scheme, which also includes a new community centre, responds to the restrictions imposed by the adjacent conservation area and frames new views of the church tower from Ben Jonson Road. The new 1, 2, 3 and 4 bed apartments for the London Borough of Tower Hamlets / Tower Hamlets Homes are an exemplar for new public housing.
