Green Door

The Amelia Street area is a patchwork of residential estates, light industrial spaces, small business workshops and commercial units. Pullens Estate, built by local trader James Pullen in the late 19th century, is one of the few remaining Victorian live-work tenement buildings in London. It is a model for city living today

The four-storey buildings wrap around cobbled yards that form the heart of the creative quarter. A primary school, a park, a small café, a newsagent and a post office surround the small craft-based businesses of Clement, Iliffe and Peacock Yards.

Our design creates a series of links, patching together the old and the new. These will be developed with locals through a series of meetings and events including:
• A book sale to stimulate discussion on retail expansion, stalls and co-operatives;
• A consultation day to discuss planting and paving in the park;
• A concert organised by craftsmen in Iliffe Yard to explore the yard’s potential;
• A bake sale at the local primary school to explore ideas for the school patch.
