Forest Road given the green light
Waltham Forest Council have given our Forest Road project the green light. The scheme for Pocket Living will provide 90 one-bed flats, on a site formerly occupied by a care home.
High-quality considered public realm is key for this development, to ensure it is safe and enjoyable for all residents and successfully integrated. The residential block will provide 100% affordable housing, eight apartments of which are wheelchair adaptable, with communal external landscaping.
Precast curved concrete elements respond to the William Morris Gallery opposite and help to articulate the massing. A wall piece, on a section of the façade, has been designed by a local artist and responds to the area’s Arts and Crafts heritage.
