St Andrew’s

The regeneration of a former hospital site, St Andrew’s, has helped shape a new model for London housing. Located in Bromley-by-Bow, the compact neighbourhood project provides much needed homes to this area of East London.

After acquiring the site, the London Development Agency selected Barratt London and Circle Anglia as partners to develop the 3-hectare site for mixed-tenure housing. Working within a framework set by masterplanners Allies and Morrison, we were engaged to develop proposals for the third phase of development, Block C.

Within St Andrew's, the arrangement of the three courtyard blocks was integral to noise buffering on a site bounded by a busy road and railway. Arranged around a courtyard garden, Block C features a variety of typologies but places a particular emphasis on family homes. These include townhouses, dual-aspect units and the provision of large terraces and balconies. They are massed to allow views of landscaping between blocks and to form landmarks when viewed from the east and west.
