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.
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.

Working in partnership with New London Architecture (the Capital’s leading independent forum for discussion and debate about architecture, planning, development and constructio), Pegasus Life will be showcasing a number of their London developments, illustrating the detailed thinking that goes into the design process for each site.
Duggan Morris Architects have submitted a revised proposals for Plot D at BBC Television Centre. The building, developed is part of the £400 million redevelopment by Stanhope at the historic home of the BBC, and being masterplanned by AHMM. The revised scheme - driven by a desire to redefine its construction and status as a landmark building within the masterplan - also reflects a vast body of research into the physical and historic context of site. The building responds to the iconic ‘doughnut’ through a sequence of strong vertical pilasters set at a three-meter grid allowing facades to curve whilst remaining faceted. At ground floor, a new public double-height colonnade provides a key link between Hammersmith Park and the Television Centre development whilst referencing the 1908 Franco-British Exhibition - or The White City - and the architectural motifs employed at the public fair.
Work on ‘The Loom’ has finally completed with the official opening of the café, run by Look Mum No Hands (LMNH). The project in Whitechapel by Duggan Morris Architects, for client Helical Bar, sees the refurbishment of over 100,000ft2 of office space, reception, new café, cycle stores and showers, as well as the relocation of the main entrance. The design seeks to explore and conserve the building’s long industrial history as a Grade II listed wool storage warehouse, whilst introducing carefully considered interventions that enable the building to meet the demands of modern commercial workspaces.
