Duggan Morris Architects have successfully achieved planning permission, with unanimous support from the local authority for plot MU5 of the Strand East masterplan.
The scheme for a mixed use building containing 42 residential units, with ground floor cafes and shops below, will sit at the southern tip of the Strand East masterplan, overlooking the Three Mills. The wider masterplan is a proposal for an entirely new neighbourhood in East London. The project, commissioned by Vastint occupies a triangular brownfield site, flanked on two sides by tributary arms of the River Lea.
The proposal will occupy the prominent end point of Sugar House Lane and join a close-knit sphere of ad-hoc buildings that cluster around the high banks of the waterways of the Lea, overlooking a new wide-open public space. The Grade-I listed House Mill sits at the centre of this picturesque family of buildings and represents a point of departure for the design, from which a series of formal and material design investigations developed.

Duggan Morris Architects have successfully achieved planned permission for Strand East Plot R3, with unanimous support from the local authority planning committee who described the proposed development as both handsome and refined.
The residential scheme will provide 156 new homes within the emerging Strand East masterplan, located near Stratford, East London, on behalf of the client Vastint. The scheme comprises three distinct residential blocks that have been carefully crafted from the inside out in response to immediate issues of outlook, proximity, orientation and privacy, as well as wider considerations of building profile, identity and context.
Construction is anticipated to commence in Q3 2017.

Construction of R7, a highly flexible mixed-use building, including 155,079 sq ft of versatile office space along with retail and public amenities to King’s Cross, is now well underway.
R7 is situated on Handyside Street, which sits to the north of the University of the Arts London. The building is within a few minute’s walk of King’s Cross and St Pancras International stations. The scheme encapsulates and responds to the very ethos of King’s Cross: a vibrant neighbourhood with a varied community. The building will offer something for everyone whether visiting, living or working in the area.
Works are now well progressed for the construction of a new housing project, for retirement housing specialist Pegasus Life. Providing sixty one and two bedroom apartments, Hampstead Green Place is a vibrant development designed to foster creativity, drawing inspiration from the surrounding area and the artists who have lived there.
The project is designed to be a place where socialising, exploring creativity and nurturing wellbeing are effortless. It features details from the notable buildings of Hampstead while being a valuable addition to the variety of architectural styles nearby.
The surrounding gardens interlock, creating enclosed gardens that teem with life; the roofscape is home to bee boxes and a wildflower meadow with an outdoor seating area.
Construction is expected to complete during summer of 2018.
Duggan Morris Architects have submitted a planning application for a housing scheme as part of the Lower Brickfields portion of Zonal Masterplan C of the wider Greenwich Peninsula redevelopment.
