Sugar House Island plot R2 is our second development on the new 26-acre neighbourhood in Stratford, East London. R2 will have 211 dwellings arranged as a perimeter block of apartments, a mews of family houses and a 14-storey tower. The buildings are arranged around two communal gardens and a publicly accessible court.
The dwellings advance principles intended to enhance quality of life such as dual aspect, generous floor to ceiling heights and south, east or west facing balconies. At the ground floor are split level apartments that ensure privacy on the street side and high ceilings towards the garden.
The scheme takes advantage of its river setting and prospect towards the Lee Valley park, whilst offering a distinct frontage to the Three Mills Wall river.
The scheme is designed to an efficient structural grid and uses modern methods of construction in the form of texturally rich and precision-engineered precast concrete wall panels.
