Hackney T2, Hackney


This design explores the potential for infill housing development across 21 estates in LB Hackney. Our review determined 105 sites to be suitable for development after considering issues such as overlooking, overshadowing, streetscape and overall impact of a potential building on each site.

Options appraisals followed which considered the height, massing, building envelope and accessibility, as well as the capacity of each site in terms of unit types and quantity. Potential improvements to the public realm and environment within each estate were also explored, and the proposals were taken to consultation with residents.
