The practice, working with Henley Halebrown and landscape architects muf architecture/art, handed in proposals to Hackney Council for 219 new homes and the upgrade of a further 174.
Phases 1 and 2 of the scheme, by the same practices, were completed in 2017. These involved building 273 new homes and refurbishing 101 existing units and were crowned Editor’s Choice at the 2018 AJ Awards.
Mayor of Hackney Philip Glanville said: ‘The new and refurbished homes we’ve already built at Kings Crescent have won plaudits from around the world, but I’m most proud that new and existing families love them and are using the amazing public spaces.
‘Our latest proposals aim to build on the successes of our work so far, with hundreds more stunning, high-quality homes, spaces for children to play and for the local community to come together.
‘I’m proud that Hackney is building new, genuinely affordable council homes across our borough for the people that need them most.’
Subject to planning permission, work will start on Phase 3 next year and be completed in 2023.
