Hazelhurst Court in LB Lewisham transforms an underused site to provide 60 affordable homes for older people with extensive communal spaces. The scheme adjoins sensitively to an existing housing block to form a horseshoe, creating two new communal courtyards.
Sutherland Road in LB Waltham Forest is on a site previously occupied by semi-derelict industrial buildings. It had to be bold and beautiful to respond to its immediate industrial context but sensitive enough to work with the smaller, period terraced houses behind. The project creates 59 new homes which are 100% affordable.
