Schmidt Hammer Lassen bags Barking thumbs up

  • Comment

Barking & Dagenham Council has approved a scheme by Danes Schmidt Hammer Lassen for a new Creative Industires Quarter in Barking, east London

The development will see the conversion of two 19th century buildings into a ‘gritty’ mixed-use scheme as part of the London Thames Gateway Development Corporation’s ongoing drive to regenerate Barking.

As well as 220 flats, the project includes 7,000 sq m of studios for local artists, a new public square, community facilities and will open theterraces overlooking the River Roding.

Stephen Willacy, of SHL architects, said: ‘We are delighted that this culturally important scheme has been given the green light.

‘The Malthouse and Granary are two of the few lasting examples of fine industrial architectural in Barking so it is vital that people rediscover the historic character of these buildings whilst adapting them for new uses, including much need residential accommodation.’
