Shaftesbury Mews

Forest Gate, London, UK

Six new 3-bed terrace houses on a brownfield site in the heart of Forest Gate, East London. The new mews development will provide living accommodation for 24 people in an area with an identified need for family homes.

Each house has an open-plan kitchen-living ground floor layout with bedrooms, bathrooms and storage provided on the upper floors. The ground floor of each house opens onto the facing ‘mews street’, extending the everyday living spaces. This intervention facilitates neighbourly interaction and in turn, promote a sense of community. The proposed car-free site ensures the external areas are a safe and secure place for children to play.
