Penoyre & Prasad's £11 million Isle of Dogs housing approved

  • Comment

Penoyre & Prasad’s competition-winning scheme for a new 56-home development on the Isle of Dogs has been given the green light by the London Borough of Tower Hamlets

The £11 million, six-storey Hammond House redevelopment for housing association the East Thames Group replaces an existing mansion block deemed ‘unfit for purpose’.

The practice describes the scheme in east London, which contains a mix of maisonettes and flats ranging in size from one to five bedroom, as ‘an exercise in providing family homes in an urban environment’.

All the units will have ‘unusually generous private amenity space’ with gardens for the ground level maisonettes, roof gardens for the top floor maisonettes and terraces or balconies for the mid-level flats.

Work is expected to start on site in in January 2011 and complete in 2012.

Postscript
Penoyre & Prasad beat PRP, Levitt Bernstein and Jestico & Whiles to win the project.
