Kyson’s three-home scheme in bombed-out Hackney unwrapped

[FIRST LOOK + PROJECT DATA] London-based practice Kyson has completed this £800,000 three-home scheme on a bomb site near the Olympic Park

Described as a ‘contemporary re-interpretation’ of the Victorian terrace, the 440m2 development in Hackney, east London, replaces a row of houses partially flattened during the Second World War.

The three-bedroom, three-storey houses are clad in black-stained Douglas fir strips which have been mechanically wire brushed ‘to give a pronounced grain,’ according to practice founder Scott Kyson. ‘The timber was then vacuum-stained allowing a deeper matt finish.’

The roof terrace features walk-on glass roof lights above three-storey stairwells.
