Penoyre & Prasad design for east London family homes gets planning permission
Penoyre & Prasad’s design for a new six-storey residential building in east London has just received planning permission with construction due to start in January 2011.
The architectural practice run by former RIBA president Sunand Prasad won a competition for its design of the £11m Hammond House redevelopment on the Isle of Dogs in Tower Hamlets.
The thinking behind the Hammond House redevelopment for East Thames Group is to create family homes, a total of 56 in this instance, in an urban environment. These homes will be a mixture of maisonettes and flats from one to five bedrooms.
All of the units will have garden space – roof gardens for the top floor maisonettes and terraces or balconies for the mid-level units.
Construction is due to complete in 2012.
