Construction is well underway on our project at 415 Wick Lane in Hackney Wick, with four of five buildings approaching completion of the superstructure and work beginning on the building envelopes.
The scheme, for Taylor Wimpey East London, will be home to a variety of uses; bringing together residential, industrial, office and retail functions on a challenging site. To the south is designated Strategic Industrial Land and heritage assets on Crown Close. To the north is the Fish Island conservation area, a vibrant neighbourhood characterised by Victorian warehouse buildings. Our design sympathetically bridges these two distinct areas by creating six distinct buildings, each with their own individual character, form and material. Each building takes reference from the neighbourhood’s vibrant history and reconciles the transition between the conservation area and industrial land. Playful saw-tooth rooftops stand alongside flat roofs, reflective corrugated metal cladding sits next to green profiled cast glass, black engineering brick, or vibrant red brickwork. The result is a distinctive place, with a strong character that feels like an authentic part of Hackney Wick.
We can’t wait for the development to be completed next year.
