East London Residential Development: Newham Housing – design by Jestico + Whiles

26 May 2011

Stratford High Street London

Consent granted for Jestico + Whiles’ Stratford High Street scheme

Jestico + Whiles has secured planning permission for a residential-led development at 2-12 Stratford High Street. Two linked aluminium clad buildings rising to 15 and 35 storey buildings will provide a striking and elegant landmark marking the entrance to the London Borough of Newham and the Olympic Legacy Park. The scheme is being developed by a joint venture between Aitch Group, VFund and FOS Properties Ltd funded by B.M.Samuels Finance Group plc with Montagu Evans as planning consultant.

Jestico + Whiles’ design responds to the prominence of the site with a graceful form that addresses both the immediate and wider context. The key elements of the building have been arranged to maximise sunlight and daylight penetration into the site and the individual dwellings, 85% of which will be dual aspect. A landscaped public space will be created on the riverside with pedestrian routes through the site linking to the existing footbridge, High Street and Cook’s Road.

The ground and first floors of both blocks will contain commercial spaces, with a two-storey gymnasium in the base of the taller building which will animate the street frontage and provide natural surveillance of the public space.

The elevations have been designed to have quality and interest at close range and maintain the clean elegant form of the building at a distance. Each dwelling has a private balcony and these are all enclosed to provide quiet, sheltered, year round amenity space. These will have built in openable screens to allow the residents to choose how and when they are open. The facade of the building wraps around the balconies maintaining the clean lines. The corners of the taller elements are brought to ground, piercing the bridge link to reinforce and maintain the form of the building.

The servicing and car parking will be raised above ground to avoid the need to dig basements close to the river whilst acting as a buffer to the flyover close to the site.
