No. 7&8 Cornthwaite Road, Clapton, Hackney / by Nikki Barton


City Architecture Office recently completed a pair of houses in Hackney for developer East End Housing.

By communicating the benefits of a bright open facade to the street we secured consent for a pair of three storey terraced houses,  an uplift to the existing planning consent for one single storey house. The design officer welcomed the design quality of the proposal & the improved natural surveillance.

Each house has a double storey living space and is topped out by a roof terrace with views across to the River Lea & Hackney Marshes.

The houses were built by Madison Contracting with Structural engineer Centrespace, and it is the third project we have worked with artist +  signwriter Archie Proudfoot , who with a steady hand painted the house numbers. 

The houses are currently on the market with Blake Stanley.
