Pumphouse, Waltham Forest


In conjunction with Clarion Housing Group, our scheme redeveloped half the Pumphouse Transport Museum site that had previously been used as storage for old vehicles. The space provides a mix of 21 apartments and large family housing available for affordable rent and low-cost ownership.

The scheme is designed to meet Lifetime Homes Standards at Code Level 4 for sustainability. Incorporated into the build are photovoltaic panels, high levels of insulation, air tightness, and high-efficiency services. The new buildings are arranged around a central mews that will enhance the existing urban grain and provide street-accessible units. The dramatic sawtooth roofs directly reference the bold roofscapes of the Edwardian, Warner, and industrial Victorian architecture styles that typify the area.
