DUTCH FIRM S333 MAKES UK DEBUT
Work has started on Netherlands-based practice S333's first project in the UK - a 32-home development in Shadwell, east London. The highly regarded firm's London office collaborated with Stock Woolstencroft on the mixed-tenure residential scheme, which is part of the larger £34 million Tarling Estate Regeneration project.
S333's competition-winning design is the third of four new blocks commissioned by the Toynbee Housing Association for the site and aims to 'combine the typology of the terrace with a patio house.' The practice has designed all the amenity space, such as the car parking, communal areas and private gardens 'to be brought in to the envelope of the building'. As well as a number of single-bedroom apartments there are also plans for large family homes, including six-bedroom houses for up to 10 people. The project is expected to complete next year.
