Emerging practice Al-Jawad Pike has been appointed to another scheme within Hackney Council’s emergent social housing drive after winning a second competition
The locally based practice was set up by ex-David Chipperfield architects Dean Pike and Jessam Al-Jawad in 2014. Its latest proposals include around 11 homes in Daubeney Road, Clapton, which will replace 25 garages.
The practice is already designing an 11-home scheme in Mandeville Street, recently submitted for planning, for the east London borough’s social housing initiative.
The programme aims to build more than 400 homes – 70 per cent of which will be for social rent and shared ownership – on 11 infill sites.
Practice co-founder Al-Jawad said: ‘The project stands as a significant opportunity for our studio, but more importantly represents Hackney’s commitment to providing much-needed good-quality social housing through the innovative development of under-utilised sites within the borough.’
The current design for the Daubeney Road scheme is for a two-storey row of staggered terraced homes, each with a private garden. However, these will be further developed in collaboration with the local community over the coming months. A planning submission is set to be submitted before the end of the year.
Al-Jawad Pike is one of five architects that have so far been announced to design schemes for Hackney’s Housing Supply Programme. The others are Mikhail Riches Architects, Lynch Architects, Ash Sakula and Surman Weston.
