The site is located in a vibrant area of London's Hackney but due to proximity to the railway has hitherto been a low priority for redevelopment. The site is occupied by a two storey steel frame industrial unit scheme which does not exploit the true potential of the site.
We envisage a low carbon residential development with superstructure made entirely of Kerto elements. Extending to eight storeys of accommodation the top floor gives out onto a shared greenhouse terrace area, a covered wintergarden to provide a social, light filled amenity for the residents.
A development on this site will be inevitable at some point in the near future but we want this to be a sustainable development that utilises the full potential of the Kerto elements. The project will develop a methodology to put the range of products to maximum use, and provide 42 residential units.
