Hawkins/Brown mixes it in Dalston

  • Comment
NEWS

Hawkins/Brown has won planning permission for a mixed-use development to regenerate a run-down brownfield site in London's Dalston. The work will be carried out in three phases: phase 1 is a £760,000 Culture House in the south-west corner of the site; the second stage will be the Stamford Works project along the northern boundary of the site - a £7 million development including four live/work units,2,200m 2of office space,36 private residential units and 10 affordable homes; while the third phase will be the transformation of Gillett Street car park, which currently occupies the centre of the site, into a town square.

Hawkins/Brown has worked closely with artist Richard Wentworth from the outset of the project. Wentworth and other artists will design a changing light sculpture that will crown the lift shaft of the residential tower acting as the square's focal point at night.

The project, which is due to start on site in the summer with a planned completion date of spring 2003, is part of Hawkins/Brown's ongoing involvement with the area. Previous projects include the Bradbury Street studios, which flank the southern boundary of the site (AJ 29.5.97), and a series of market stalls which occupy the car park - a scheme which won the AJ Small Projects competition in 2000.
