HHR wins planning for Uffizi-inspired Union Wharf scheme

  • Comment

Henley Halebrown Rorrison (HHR) has won planning permission for this £9.5 million residential-led, mixed-use project overlooking the Regent’s Canal in Hackney, east London

The 4,474m2 Union Wharf scheme for Benyon Estates will create 35 new homes, including four triplex flats, as well as a new pub, shop, two cafés, office space and new piazzas linking Kingsland Road to the waterfront.

A spokesman for the firm, which emerged from AJ/Corus 40-under-40 practice Buschow Henley in June 2010, said the scheme would be built from concrete and timber.

He said: ‘Solid timber construction offers procurement and quality advantages. It is sustainable, it reduces site time considerably, and can be exposed to form an attractive finished surface, which because of its ability to ‘breathe’, contributes to a healthy living environment.’

According to the practice, the design was inspired by the Uffizi Palace in Florence, with colonnades lining the basin square.
