Foster Lomas scoops planning for east London live-work unit

Foster Lomas has received planning for a £230,000 one-bedroom live-work unit in Walthamstow

PROJECT DATA

The long-awaited approval follows three years of planning negotiations with the council to add the space above the existing warehouse on the Lea Park Trading Estate.

Providing 65m2 of additional space, the live-work unit sits above a warehouse which is currently being used as a film production workshop.

It features a ‘stripped back’ palette of materials and raw finishes and matches the form of the neighbouring brick building.

According to the practice, the scheme is a ‘response to rising property prices which had made in inefficient for the client to maintain separate properties for his home and business’.
