LTS wins go-ahead for super-green East End council housing

  • Comment

LTS Architects has won planning permission to replace 44 garages in east London with a 19-unit housing block for Tower Hamlets Council

The 2,284m² infill scheme in Shetland Road features a Passivhaus standard envelope which, the practice claims, was introduced ‘to try and eliminate fuel poverty for residents’.

The four-storey building is clad in a mix of brick and coloured corrugated sheet and includes a lightweight deck structure providing access to the flats on the upper levels and semi-private landscaped communal space at ground level.

Work is expected to complete next year.
