- London Borough of Barking and Dagenham
- Design Stage
High quality mixed-tenancy housing, arranged generally on four floors
Design Engine, along with Macreanor Lavington and Karakusevic Carson, were commissioned to design 500 residential units over 3 sites within ‘The William Street Quarter’ scheme (a masterplan by Dutch firm Urhahn, for the London Borough of Barking and Dagenham).
The Design Engine scheme provides high quality mixed-tenancy housing; arranged generally on four floors but with a ten-storey tower providing exemplary one, two and three-bed apartments. The target for the scheme is to achieve ‘Level 4’ of the Code for Sustainable Homes assessment and other design criteria such as Building for Life, Secure by Design and Lifetime Homes, which have all been taken into account through an innovative and rigorous design process.
