Sheep Lane, Hackney

A 'forgotten' street in the back of Hackney was the site for a new residential led mixed-use development.  The former factory building had to be replaced with like-for-like employment floor space whilst new homes could be built in an 'air-rights' type development.

In securing an enhanced planning consent we set about delivering the 6 self-contained commercial spaces, comprising 1,500SqM over ground and basement, and 45 one, two and three bedroom flats arranged around 3 seperate cores and providing a mix of tenures.  Designed to CfSH L3 and BREEAM very good the building now contributes to an improved street scene with versatile commercial space at street level and much needed family housing above.
