The planning application for 57 Berkshire Road was submitted to the London Legacy Development Company (LLDC) in December 2016 on behalf of Cold park Ltd. The projects forms part of the Hackney Wick Masterplan developed by the LLDC.
Spacehub collaborated with Mikhail Riches and CMA planning on the design of this mixed use development that includes 39 new homes and 860m2 of flexible workspace.
The proposals creates a robust, multifunctional mews street activated by resident’s entrances and shopfront style open plan workspace. Tenants and residents are encouraged to occupy and personalises this space over time.
A historical Victorian sewer vent pipe or ‘Stink Pipe’ – which needs to be relocated adjacent to the site – will be repainted in conspicuous colours to form a graphic totem for the project.
