This project for Pocket Living provides affordable one-bedroom homes for first time buyers in Walthamstow, meeting the borough’s housing aspirations while making a lasting contribution to the area.

Efficient and functional layouts are augmented with an external design that responds sensitively to the strong character of the surrounding area, and a sense of community is promoted through shared amenities.

Clear and open consultation and attention to detail has garnered support for the high-quality, Mayor’s Design Standard scheme from the planning department and local residents.
