[FIRST LOOK + PLANS] Construction has started on Bell Phillips Architects’ £1.15 million Prince Regent Lane housing project for the London Borough of Newham in east London
Built to code for sustainable homes level 5, the project features four houses, a three-bedroom ‘duplex’ apartment and a two-bedroom flat.
Selected following a two-stage design competition, the practice’s design was chosen to set a ‘benchmark’ for the redevelopment of the nearby Albert Dock area. The scheme is Newham Council’s first new-build housing project in close to 20 years.
The homes feature 148m² of photovoltaic panels and a green roof.
