PH+ Architects has unveiled a 120-home, mixed-use scheme on the edge of the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park.
Iceland Wharf, for developer City & Surburban Homes, will sit between the River Lea and the A12, behind retained pub The Lighthouse. The scheme will also deliver more than 3,500m2 of commercial space. More than a third of the homes will be affordable.
PH+, which has offices in London and Sydney, was showcasing the scheme at the MIPIM property fair in Cannes this week. It said it wanted Iceland Wharf to become an exemplar of how to deliver sustainable high-density mixed-use developments.
The practice said the project ‘delivers layers of housing, industrial and maker space alongside more flexible tethered living and working environments’.
It added: ‘These are linked by shared yards and amenity spaces to facilitate the exchanges required to allow emerging communities to form.’
The scheme, less than 1km from the 2012 London Olympics stadium, has not yet been submitted for planning.
